An Article on Keekle Head in this Months Lancashire magazine has made it to the light of day… Note the absence of any national articles, media or comment on this decision which has huge ramifications for the government’s vicious nuclear agenda.
Extract from the article:
Cumbria’s cabinet member for the environment Councillor Clare Feeney-Johnson said: ‘It sends a clear message to Endecom and other developers that not only has the county council made the correct strategic decision based on the full range of evidence, but also that it was acting in the best interests of the local community.’
Marianne Birkby spokesman for campaigners Radiation Free Lakeland said, ‘Congratulations to all who have campaigned hard and long to save Keekle Head from becoming a nuclear dumping ground for the top end of low level nuclear wastes. Campaigners against the nuclearisation of Keekle Head included pronuclear councillors and even the Copeland MP Jamie Reed, the same people who are bizarrely campaigning for the infinitely bigger and more dangerous geological dumping of high level nuclear wastes under Cumbria.
‘Keekle Head is the source of the beautiful River Keekle featured recently on BBC’s Countryfile as one of the last strongholds of the critically endangered freshwater pearl mussel.’
Cumbrian salmon poachers hunted freshwater pearl mussels in Victorian times for rare black pearls known as ‘unicorn tears’.
note: a passing thought for winter solstice, traditionally a time of deep earth magik: is believing in unicorns less delusional than believing in the myth of clean nuclear ‘power’ ?
