Our Glowing Future
Despite the departure from the mayor's office of the garden-bridge-boosting, cable-car-dangling, skysore-pimping, bus-buggering London Haystack, let it not be supposed that the Government's Blanched Pachyderm Department has fallen idle. Britain will soon be celebrating its new-found independence from the Euro-wogs by throwing a few billion at a French company to start constructing the country's first nuclear power station in twenty years. Hinkley Point C is being shilled as the eventual supplier of seven per cent of Britain's energy for almost sixty years, and is optimistically scheduled for completion in 2025. The resignations from EDF's boardroom over the project have been prominent but evidently not disincentivising; and the likely eventual need for the British taxpayer to bail out the French company does mean the Government will have something worthwhile on which to spend all that money it has saved by starving the British solar industry.
