    Hello Jim,

    it's their real reason because it makes no sense to build costly and more difficult to run nuclear generators instead of fossil fuel ones when the fuel for them is plentiful from their own sources. You say they have been inspected, no doubt they have, of sites the Iranians want inspected. I don't trust them an inch.

    The situation in the U.K. is entirely different and if we are going to expand our baseload capacity then nuclear is one very good way. Unfortunately we are still wasting money on renewables to the detriment and discouragement of investment in essential gas power stations. This policy can only end in tears eventually.
    The government is trying to find an alternative way to fund nuclear, which is an expensive and long term investment given the complication and the long duration of construction. Sizewell is being discussed and possibly a re think on Wylfa Head.

    I notice there is now a Sizewell C. Not sure when that crept out. Is this part of the possible plans you mention?
