The Whitehaven News reports today on the worst kept secret that Toshiba is financially torpedoing.
Still not to worry eh, there are still slush funds aplenty to greenwash the increasingly despised Moorside plan. Apart from NuGen (100% Toshiba) the other two sponsors are the Copeland Community Fund ( this fund doles out the £millions Cumbria is bribed with to continue to accept nuclear wastes) and United Utilities (in cahoots with the nuclear industry and currently under fire for polluting West Cumbria’s water supply). The nuclear fanatics are calling for the government to “step in” and “save Moorside”- are they joking? Successive governments have never stepped away from throwing public money at the expanding nuclear nightmare.
