BBC and Other Media Continue to IGNORE Nuclear Aspects of this Coal Mine

the Coal Authority/BEIS should not be quietly rubber stamping renewal/extension of licenses for what is already the most controversial coal mine in UK history – a coal mine with enormous nuclear implications which have been brushed aside by our pro nuclear government.

Roger Harrabin the BBC’s Environment correspondent continues to studiously ignore the nuclear impacts and complicity of our pro nuclear government in the employment of two top executives (one former, one existing) of the coal mine to the public bodies pushing the plan for Geological Disposal of Nuclear Wastes in the UK. The same government department responsible for the Coal Authority, the Climate Change Committee and the Government bodies pushing for a deep nuclear waste dump have appointed top executives from West Cumbria Mining. But all Roger Harrabin the BBC’s top environment correspondent can harp on about is climate and jobs. The Government are very happy with that focus. Just don’t mention the NUCLEAR CRAPOLA!

The below is a letter to our MP Tim Farron asking for answers on some of the issues that our myopic BBC and other correspondents and NGOs SHOULD be asking…

How Deep is Your Love?

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

Walter Asks : How Deep is Your Love ?

LAKES AGAINST NUCLEAR DUMP

The most controversial coal mine in UK history has seen its executives (one former and one existing) appointed by Government to the official bodies tasked with “Delivery of the GDF. ” The promoted GDF is being touted in the area immediately adjacent to the coal mine plan under the Irish Sea. In March the Chief Executive Officer of West Cumbria Mining will be giving a talk promoting Delivery of a GDF – he has been employed by government to do this!

The lack of press and mainstream NGO scrutiny and questioning over this and other appointments is noteworthy.

Walter from has written the following emails, and he raises questions that the mainstream press and conservation and environmental bodies SHOULD BE ASKING instead of expressing their continued surprise to a gullible mainstream press at why Government is so…

Comment on Today’s Sunday Times Article

Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole

Here is my rather exasperated and off the cuff comment on today’s Sunday Times article which features in hero mode the CEO of West Cumbria Mining Mark Kirkbride . The impacts mentioned speak only of climate … and of course there is no mention that it was nuclear safety campaigners Radiation Free Lakeland who took the lonely step of opposing this mine in 2017 with our Keep Cumbrian Coal in the Hole campaign when no one else could be bothered….now its an issue in vogue – but don’t mention nuclear- keep schtum about that at all costs!

“All the recent press coverage and huff and puff by NGOs who said nothing much at all (apart from suggesting that the mine could have a ‘shorter’ life to 2049! ) during the several years running up to the Council’s planning approval are ignoring the most outrageously dangerous features of this mine. One…
