Received an email today from George Monbiot “claiming” £100 for “arresting himself.”
He seems to think that he is worth more than £100 bounty on his head (as he puts it) – unfortunately not.
The “bounty” (his word) is to be released to Radiation Monitoring in Cumbria.
Also today received very abusive emails from Monbiot supporters – but many more from ordinary people thanking us for taking the action of highlighting Monbiot’s criminal advocacy of nuclear power.
Here is the correspondence between myself and Monbiot
Have you presented yourself to a police station to ask them to carry out
an arrest for Nuclear Crimes against Humanity and the Environment yet?
The terms of the website clearly state that the arrestor will receive a
certificate, while the £100 will be presented to RADMIC – a voluntary
group aiming to set up independent monitoring in Cumbria. Just one
example why local people want to take this action is because monitoring
and retrieval of radioactive particles on Cumbrian beaches has been scaled
back despite more radioactive particles, including alpha emitting, being
found. This is most likely as a result of accelerated reprocessing
activity (for your much vaunted voodoo fast breeders).
If you send an address a certificate will wing its way to you.
