Nuclear Nightmare To Expand in Lancaster Area? Heysham 3 ??? NO!

~The Nuclear Nightmare Continues….unless…..we stop it.  Some say that it won’t be public pressure or environmentalists that stop nuclear but it will be the finance, the profligate, unending use of public money.  This sounds wonderful but it does not of course account for the underlying reason why the government wants new nuclear.  New nuclear is “necessary” to keep nuclear infrastructure in place for the MOD in order to keep our place in the world as a “nuclear power.”  All of which is insane..the UKs nuclear WMD are supposedly to protect us.  But they are routinely poisoning us in their making and also making us (and specifically the North West) the biggest target in the world.

The latest useful cheerleader for all things nuclear is David Morris MP for Morecambe and Lunesdale who is cheerleading for new nuclear at Heysham.  Heysham is just 17 miles from the fracking site at Preston New Road – Seismic activity anyone?  Not that we need an earthquake to be poisoned by nuclear – its routine.

The following was posted on the Radiation Free Lakeland facebook page by a member and the whole nasty plan could not have been better put:

“Good grief.

Let us not forget

and the fact that Core 1 in Heysham 1 is running on 7 out of it’s 8 boilers (all inside the biological shield with the core) because it has a cracked spline (the bit holding up the boiler around which they are built) The other 7 boilers in core 1 are built to the same design as are the 8 boilers in the adjacent core …. and in both cores of Hartlepool opposite on the East Coast… while their core graphite cracks and shrinks with the possibility that control rods may not fall freely when needed to do in a scram shutdown and fuels rod may get permanently stuck in the core leaving us with a Windscale (aka Sellafield aka Calder Hall aka in the future God forbid Moorside) Pile 1 type problem.

What could possibly go wrong with having 3 (6 cores) of Nuclear Reactors overlooking Morecambe Bay ?

And the Morecambe MP is asking for help from the Prime Minister to make this happen

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! for effect  “
