Hands Up Who Wants £Millions – Now Hands Up Who Wants Nuclear Waste Buried Underneath Them?

This latest offering from Radioactive Waste Management ( last incarnations were NIREX and  MRWS) is shockingly putrid.  As Nuclear Historian Professor Robert Jacobs has commented on the video : 100 years of virtually "envisioned competence and prosperity to seek “consent” for toxicity that lasts more than 100,000 years. Seems legit. Nice music. Do the people who …

Local Government Ombudsman Refuse To Take Action Against Allerdale Borough Council – Meanwhile Nuclear Laundry is Washing nearly 8 tons a day of Sellafield’s dirty laundry Without Planning Permission or Scrutiny at Lillyhall, Workington.

I have just rung up Democratic Services at Allerdale Borough Council and they say that the next meeting this may be discussed at is the 1st October. This is a SCANDAL. The nuclear laundry is continuing to operate WITHOUT SCRUTINY OR PLANNING PERMISSION. WHY? Why is Sellafield exporting its dirty laundry to a business park 16 miles away? Why hasn’t Allerdale Borough Council SHUT THIS ILLEGAL NUCLEAR LAUNDRY DOWN? sorry for the shouty capital letters but No one is shouting about this in the national media – why not?

Energy Coast Laundry – a former car showroom.

Darren Ennis

Our investigations and opposition to this diabolic nuclear laundry have been stymied at every turn including a personal attack by Darren Ennis “Avid #Brexitwatcher back in Brussels after Gibraltar. Former Advisor to EU High Rep, Reuters journalist, civil nuclear advocate.”   According to him this nuclear laundry has “nothing to do with Sellafield” yep they are only washing nearly 8 ton of Sellafield’s dirty laundry a day ….its clear whose interests this high flying reporter is protecting. 

We have now had a reply from the Local Government Ombudsman (below) who say that because Allerdale Council have (now) asked the laundry to apply for retrospective planning permission there is no fault to answer.  This is revisionist history.  The ONLY reason that Allerdale Borough Council finally admitted that Energy Coast Laundry (Shortridge) was operating illegally was BECAUSE of our complaint to the…

The Coal Mine and The Crown

#KeepCumbrianCoalintheHole – its Too Close to #Sellafield

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

Letter published in the Westmorland Gazette,   also sent to Sir David Attenborough

LETTER: Sir David Attenborough could stop the Cumbrian coal mine

(2)

WHAT fantastic news that Sir David Attenborough is lending his voice to those opposing the coal mine under the Irish Sea off St Bees.

As a nuclear safety group concerned about the safety of Sellafield, we have been opposing this nearby coal mine from the outset.

Sellafield is recognised as the most hazardous place in Europe with stockpiles of the most dangerous radioactive wastes on the planet. This coal mine would extend to just 8km from these nuclear wastes, so there are big concerns.

The Sellafield area has been identified in a recent geological report as being at high risk of liquefaction (where the earth turns to mush). Liquefaction can result from earthquakes, and the only place in the UK to…

Good News that Sir David is On the Case!

An Open Letter to Sir David Attenborough and all those with influence to #KeepCumbrianCoalintheHole

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

This is an open letter to Sir David Attenborough who has recently voiced concern, and to all who have influence to stop the Cumbrian Coal mine in its tracks.

Dear Sir David Attenborough,
Thank you so much for recently voicing your concerns about the planned coal mine in West Cumbria.  
As a nuclear safety group concerned about the safety of Sellafield we have been opposing this nearby coal mine from the outset.  As you will know Sellafield is the most hazardous place in Europe with stockpiles of the most dangerous radioactive wastes on the planet. Given that this coal mine would extend to just 8km from Sellafield the possibility of liquefaction at Sellafield resulting from earthquakes in the West Cumbria area would be catastrophic on a planetary scale.  When I stood at the planning meeting and spoke to councillors about Sellafield being at high risk of liquefaction (as described in a…
