The Need To Know test
Britain’s worst nuclear accident, thus far, happened in the core of Britain’s first nuclear reactor at Windscale, now called Sellafield. The small fire, that started on October 10, 1957, illustrated the insanity of building nuclear reactors anywhere near towns or cities.
As the fire intensified. Those in charge were faced with two choices. If they allowed the fire to burn, in the hope it would burn it-self out, the nuclear fuel could melt into a super-critical-mass causing a nuclear explosion, larger than Hiroshima and Nagasaki put together.
If they attempted to put the fire out by flooding the reactor. The increasing temperature could flash the incoming water into super-heated-steam. Causing a non-nuclear explosion (as at Chernobyl). Either type of explosion would spread fatal fall-out over the homes of millions, leading to mass evacuations - and a much-devalued £. Rather than do nothing.
They flooded the reactor.
The gamble paid off.
Ministers Of The Crown, who knew how close the North of England came to becoming a nuclear desert, were also faced with two choices. They could tell the truth: An
accident at the Sellafield plutonium factory will destroy the lives of millions. Therefore, nuclear waste (read bomb) production should be moved to the wide-open spaces of America.
Or, they could keep quiet and continue feathering their offshore nests by pouring the taxpayer's billions into
the Queen's (Establishment companies) supplying and operating Sellafield

Despite the insane risks
Russian cargo vessels (rust buckets) are now
shipping illegal nuclear waste packed in ordinary containers between west European ports sailing through the North Sea, the Baltic and the Gulf of Finland before arriving at St Petersburg.
Greenpeace has tracked these
The nuclear waste containers then travel through major population centres, including the cites of St Petersburg and Tomsk. A nasty accident or terrorist attack will poison millions.
A new report from Greenpeace,
Europe's Radioactive Secret details the illegal waste trade between the thugs running the EU and Mr Putin's Russia. The nuclear wastes concerned are of two types: contaminated uranium resulting from reprocessing at the Cogema /
Areva facilities at la Hague, Normandy; and depleted uranium
(DU) from nuclear fuel facilities in Britain, France, Germany and the Netherlands.

The opportunities for terrorism would prove too tempting by far. Britain would find itself teetering permanently on the edge of blackout.
The pro-nuclear Mr. Blair was told last year by his energy advisors "You can achieve a low-carbon economy without nuclear". The Cabinet Office's Performance and Innovation Unit has found offshore wind alone has the potential to provide ten times more electricity than is currently used.
Solar, hydro and biomass power carry none of the security and health risks nuclear power imposes.
Nor will the hapless taxpayer ever be forced to cough up endless billions to keep them safe.
One way or another Her Majesty's
Government needs to expand its pitiful renewable energy programme. If it allows more nuclear stations and more dependence on oil and gas imports.
Or total contamination.
Who Will Rid Me Of This Troublesome Beckett?
Crusty old crone Lord Jenkin of Roding
words out. "Is it not clear that the brief from DTI officials to the incoming Secretary of State, Alan Johnson, has warned targets to reduce carbon dioxide emissions and boost green energy are likely to fail, and that decisions on new nuclear power stations must be taken urgently? Is it not really the case, as that briefing goes on to suggest, that because Beckett, that is, of course, Margaret Beckett, opposes new

Why would any "Noble" Lord want to build hideously expensive nuclear waste stations when building cheaper systems makes the world a safer place?
Answers, on a postcard please, to the Brown Envelop Bank, Liechtenstein.
Incidentally. It was Mr (now "Noble" Lord) Michael Heseltine who ordered the demolition of Britain's Clean Burn Coal Research Centre as part of the old cronies scheme to increase oil, gas and nuclear profits by closing-down the coal industry and throwing those bloody uppity miner's out of work.
The Way Forward Sea Power
2001. The Wavegen "Limpet" Shoreline Power Station. Wavegen’s oscillating water column (OWC) system uses the perpetual tide to supply the British National Grid. Her Majesty's
Government want nothing to do with virtually free power from the perpetual motion of the sea.
2002. Her Majesty's
Government allocated £M2.3 for wave energy development. The same year Camden Council earmarked £M2.9 for refurbishing

2004. The Islay Bus -
The World's First Wave Powered Bus
The world's first electric motor minibus powered by wave energy. The Islay Bus re-charges overnight with cheap, clean power from the sea provided by the Limpet shoreline power system above. The Islay Bus produces no pollution, no rattle and a lot less noise. Running costs have been slashed from 23p per mile (for a diesel engine bus) to just 8p per mile. NOT even allowed to think of how much the royals are making every single minute from the family's oil well investments. There has never been any questions in Her Majesty's
Why? I hear you ask. Haven’t we slashed costs and halved pollution in British cities by running electric buses albeit charged by conventional power stations? Well, the answer to that is quiet simple. Her Majesty's
Government gives “privatized” bus companies, 80% discount on diesel! Members of Her Majesty's
Parliament probing the Queen's control of the Energy Market. Which gives you some idea of how patently useless Parliament has become. Greenpeace put the Islay Sea Bus on the road.
Crown Planning After Three Mile Island nearly poisoned Pennsylvania, 1979, a half decent Head Of State would have converted Sellafield into a safe energy development centre. Using sea, solar & wind power we can have the cheapest electricity in history. Britain should be exporting safe-power-systems to the rest of the world. Given an honest Head Of State we would be. Those on Lizzy's nuclear-gravy-train can well afford to pretend suicidal fanatics haven’t got nuclear site’s on their hit list. But unless you have an escape plane standing-by. You shouldn’t.
Wheels Within Wheels Rob The Public Purse
A secret team within the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) is preparing the [spurious] case for new nuclear power stations. The companies set to bid for multi-billion contracts include Westinghouse the US arm of the State owned BNFL (BNG). The Guardian. 27 March 2005.
Governments build nuclear power stations to make nuclear bombs and depleted uranium (DU) dirty ammunition. Every other type of power station produces infinitely safer and cheaper electricity.
No private power company could ever budget for dismantling a nuclear power station [decommissioning] without increasing everyone's electricity bill ten-fold.
Despite Minister's denials the companies that build and run nuclear power stations have government guarantees stating the government of the day will pay the never-ending back-end costs of redundant reactors (and storing eternally fatal nuclear waste)
Government of the day, of course, means the taxpayer.
memo Disgraced Trade Minister Tim Smith, a friend of the Hamilton's, gave evidence to Sir Gordon Downing and the Nolan Committee on minister's illegal income. As Her Majesty's
Trade Minister, Smith admitted he had taken bribes amounting to £25,000 from Harrods owner Al Fayed. Asked what he did with the money. Smith replied.
"I paid it into an account of one kind or another."
None of Her Majesty's
many and varied "Government Inquires" charged with rooting-out bent ministers made any attempt to find Smith's, or the Hamilton's,
or the Archer's or the Aitken's off-shore accounts.
Why? Well one wouldn't want anyone finding one of one's own accounts. Would one?

When the Queen opens her next Parliament with what is referred to as The Gracious Speech she is hoping to introduce the latest Serious Crime Bill * in which poaching a salmon or a trout is classed as a Serious Crime! If you refuse to answer any questions about your alleged involvement in this heinous crime you will be jailed for FIVE YEARS for not answering questions!! And, I Kid Ye Not. The same Bill, that Her Majesty can't wait to sign into law, do's not class armed robbery as a Serious Crime!!! ** So there you have it. Can you think of any sane reason for keeping a monarch who thinks more of what happens to salmon than her subjects facing armed robbers? The time has come to end the royal pantomime and the blatant theft of taxpayers money it stands for.
* Baroness Ainley. ** Lord Goodhart & Viscount Bledisloe, Serious Crime Bill debate House of Lords 7 February 2007.
When she isn't throwing bones for her parliamentary poodles the Queen has her own gun dog stud at Sandringham where one's common subjects can snap up a royal pup for a mere two-thousand-pounds.
One's dogs have always been better fed and housed than one's pensioners. That is the royal way. One's subjects never realize they work hard all their lives so we royals don't have to do a stroke.
The magnificent Buckingham Palace & Windsor Castle are public buildings. The royals have lived in these buildings rent free for centuries. In 1992 a fire damaged part of Windsor Castle above Ministers of Crown immediately announced the taxpayer would pay the estimated £6 million restoration bill! The public made it known through the media the royal parasites should pay their own bills. This led to a palace statement.
"The Queen [a multi-billionaire] has offered to pay the bill for the fire by raising the money herself." It was then announced. "Buckingham Palace [a public building] will be open to the public." The Queen then sold tickets at £10 each for a quick tour round half a dozen of the palaces' 690 rooms.
This proved an extremely nice little earner. In 2002 it came to light the Queen had collected £20 million more than she needed to pay for the Windsor fire. Royal secretary Sir Michael Peat told the Select Committee on Public Spending the Queen had "used" the £20 million on the royal art collection. So that's all right then. Half-starved pensioners scared to leave their own home never cross the royal mind.

The London Blitz.
Winston Churchill inspecting bomb damage.
September. 7th 1940. The codeword Cromwell was issued. Hitler’s invasion was expected at any time.
On that day, French Chef René Roussin was told, escape planes were on stand-by to evacuate the royal family. The Queen (later Queen Mum) had chosen him, as one of forty chosen Household Staff, to accompany the family to America. The invasion didn't happen but the escape planes were kept in constant readiness and the family were always ready to abandon Britain at a moments notice.’ Throughout the war the royals pulled off all kinds of disgraceful publicity stunts (photo shoots) pretending to take part in the war effort. While all the time knowing their escape planes were only a car ride away.’ In one stunt, Movietone News show’s Lizzy, above right, ‘Digging For Victory’ in one of the kitchen gardens at Windsor Castle. According to the commentary the royals had to manage, ‘like their subjects, on home grown potatoes, powdered eggs and that tiny ration-issue of meat and sugar that leaves everyone feeling hungry.’ In truth, the war made little difference to the royal menu. Roast beef, spring lamb, fillet-steak, venison, grouse, partridge eggs, pheasant, trout, salmon, most things the family would normally order, in season, were served as per usual. They even insisted on their personal Royal Coats of Arms stamped on their individual butter pats, as per usual! Throughout WW2, wherever the family were hiding, deep beneath Buck House or Windsor Castle, or up at Balmoral, they were served the usual surfeit of the best of everything. Their favourite chocolate pudding was served on gold plate, as per usual.
The King, George 6, drank a decanter of 20-yr-old malt every night. The Queen Mum sipped Gordons & Dubonnet - day and night. While Londoner’s sheltered from Hitler’s bombs in foul-stinking Tube stations. The royals were waited-on hand & foot as per usual, in the ‘Little Palace,’ 100 feet beneath the 690 roomed Buckingham Palace.
(The Little Palace, only 24 rooms, was built, at the taxpayer’s expense, shortly after the first bombs to fall on London were hand-dropped from Zeppelins - 1915).
They did of course sally forth from their halls of plenty to visit the latest bombsite and tut-tut.
Then as now, photo shoots were essential, to fool the ignorant into thinking the royals care about Britain. Had they not put on the walk-about-pantomime even the least intelligent would have realised how needless royal parasites really are. Visiting East End bombsites they had to be surrounded by armed guards. Men who had fought for King & Country in WW1, only to be treated like vermin ever-since, had threatened to ‘lynch the two-faced bastards.’ Throughout WW2 a company of Grenadier Guards and two Troops of Armoured Car shadowed the royals. Ready to speed them to their escape planes the moment an invasion was confirmed. Anyone who got in the way would have been shot.
As you read this. Helicopters are standing by. Ready to lift the royals to the nearest ‘clean’ airstrip the moment the lid comes off Sellafield or any other potential Nuclear 9\11. USAF jets will fly the family to ‘a safe location.’ Anyone who gets in the way will be shot. Shouldn’t
we be shooting them?

Having nothing better to do, Charles feels the need for his team of dresser’s to change his clothes three, sometimes five, times, a day! His hand-lasted shoes (John Lobb) cost £1,800 a pair. His walk-in shoe cupboards outshine Emelda’s. Charles's countless Turnbull & Asser shirts cost £200 - £500 each. His Saville Row suits (Anderson & Sheppard) cost around £2,500 each. Although Clammy Cammy got rid of hundreds of ‘older suits’ when his mummy told him he was to separate from Diana, over 100 suits rarely leave the various palace dressing room wardrobes for the 'baggage train' of 100 suits that follow him everywhere he go's. If Charles becomes King he will have over 700 servants - presently attending his mummy. All at the taxpayers expense, of course. This family pay for nothing. The billions they have in US and Swiss banks was made from the Slave and Arms trade or stolen from the Civil List over the last three centuries. The Queen receives a gift from the taxpayer of £M7.9 spending money (Civil List) per annum, on top of which the taxpayer picks up the £2 Billion bill for royal security.

Daddy forced him into marriage. Charles would have been far happier left in bed with his boyfriend's and their wives. Diana was simply too normal for a "royal marriage."
Why you may ponder are we still paying for this royal Pantomime.
Always up for a Piss-Up
Frequent flyer Charles receives an award for his waffles on global warming.
As a perspective Head of State Charles would be better thought of if he wrote an open letter to Messer's Brown and Campbell inviting them to accompany him on a weekend fact finding tour visiting Chernobyl's younger victims - born twenty years after the accident!
Until he faces the reality of nuclear power it will remain obvious Charles has both hands in the nuclear power till. Anything that comes out of his mouth in the meantime is worthless, some would say criminal, waffle.
January 26th 2007. BBC News 24 reported:
When Prince Charles heard he'd been given an American award he decided to collect it himself.
Charles could easily have sent one his American Foundation staff to pick up the trinket. But no. He dropped his weekend fox-ripping to fly to a sumptuous self serving piss-up. After Mummy vetoed the very idea of using the Royal Airforce he bought all 62 Business and First Class seats on a British Airways scheduled flight!
He took his surrogate granny, four secretaries, four dressers and a dozen beefy bodyguards, leaving the other 40 seats empty for "security reasons."
Ex Vice President Al Gore arranged extra security for the royal entourage in New York.
If Charles cared about anything other than himself he would admit the unwarranted danger from nuclear power plants; join Greenpeace and campaign for the closure of all nuclear plants before we have Nuclear 9\11. Or worse.
Another Fine Mess
Between August 2004 and May 2005 83,000 litres (twenty-tons) of dissolved nuclear fuel rods containing enough plutonium to make twenty Nagasaki size bombs was happily sloshing around the floor, unnoticed by the staff at the Sellafield, Thorp, reprocessing plant!
The fatal liquor had escaped through a broken pipe. This latest accident to close the nuclear fuel plant will cost the taxpayer appox £180 million - on top of the £70 BILLION public money already allocated to cleaning-up the unholy mess previous nuclear waste production has made.
Despite the danger of a Nuclear 9\11 now that we have suicidal squads now living amongst us.
Despite the dangers of a Chernobyl type accident. Despite the financial insanity of building and running nuclear waste (power) stations.
Despite the fact that Increasing the production of everlasting nuclear waste automatically rules out any possibility that nuclear power can save future carbon dioxide emissions, corrupt Ministers of The Crown are calling for more nuclear waste stations! In line with the claim Iraq could mushroom London within 45 minutes. Ministers are claiming we need nuclear power to save the environment!!! Environmental Maths
Nuclear Mission Accomplished
Since the 1991 Gulf War, there has been a thirty-fold increase in birth defects in parts of southern Iraq.
Fifty-percent of all Iraqi cancer patients are now under five-years-old. This is an eighty-percent increase since 1991 when the first "smart" nuclear waste bombs were dropped on Iraq. Between 1991 and 2007 as much as two-thousand-tons of nuclear waste, in the form of Dirty Ammo or Du for short, has been exploded in Iraq.
Dirty Ammo or depleted uranium is nuclear waste.
If it wasn't made into shells and bombs it would have
to be monitored for hundreds if not thousands of years. Exploding nuclear waste as a weapon is premeditated murder of the next generation and the next, and the next, and the next - recurring. "The powers that be" can not deny they know exactly what they are doing. They have been studying the effects of exploded nuclear waste since the accident at Chernobyl in 1986.
More trouble at'th plute mill
The proposed privatization of British Nuclear Group (BNG) is raising the hackles of environmentalists and Sellafield unions alike. Amicus national officer Doug Rooney stated.
'The proposal to privatise British Nuclear Group will set up another Railtrack.'
Gary Smith, national officer at the GMB agreed.
'Like Railtrack it will be dependent on public money, the private sector managers will look out for number one, any corners cut could lead to a catastrophic mistake.'
Apart from the inevitable cost cutting that comes with privatization. The billions of taxpayers money given to the rail industry, after Her Majesty's
Government had sold it to their asset stripping pals, will pale into insignificance when Sellafield is completely in the hands of companies owned (through the usual nominees) by the royals. These companies will receive the taxpayers money by the trainload.
Typical Tory Spivs Tebbit and Parkinson Flogging Off Public Assets for private profit.
Satan's Daughter proved you can steal public assets and get away with it as long as the Head of State gets the principal cut. Every country with a government of spivs followed Thatcher's lead. Everywhere privatization has been forced on people Heads of State and their bent ministers are immensely richer and the poor are going backwards.
Britain needs an elected Head Of State. Not another born parasite, born with billions in foreign banks and bent on asset stripping Britain before Murphy's Law pays a visit to Sellafield and makes Britain unfit for Human Habitation.
Typical nuclear power promoters
The Cheshire Hams. To increase oil and nuclear waste profits, pin-stripped parasites were ordered to close down 177 of Britain’s 223 coalmines. Passing Trade Minister Neil Hamilton and his wife-cum-parliamentary secretary, were involved with the National Nuclear Corporation (NNC) NNC’s head office being in his then constituency, Tatton, Cheshire. Better known as the Nuclear Nutters Club, NNC was created to steal the taxpayer’s money using the Secrets Act to pour billions of public money into needless nuclear waste production.
1992. Hamilton set-out to sue the Guardian for £M10 - For calling him a puerile liar. On the day of the court case he was shown the evidence against him. He ran from the court. Ordered to pay legal costs, he told BBC News he would have to sell his £M1 Cheshire home. As usual he was lying. Years later he tried to sue Al Fayed - For calling him a puerile liar. After losing the case; he again said he would have to sell his £M1 Cheshire home to pay his legal costs. As usual he was lying.
The Hamilton’s are typical nuclear power promoters. No decent person ever promoted the production of nuclear waste - which poisons God's Earth and everything on it. Anyone who say's Britain needs nuclear power stations has got to a be a 24 ct bare-faced-born-liar. “On the make and on the take.”
Nuclear Thugs 2001
Tourists watched in amazement when Moscow police suddenly launched snatch attacks on peaceful activists protesting against the Ministry of Atomic Power (Minatom. The Kremlin run equivalent of British Nuclear Fuels (BNFL / BNG).
You may think the Kremlin had learned the nuclear lesson. Not so. In 2001 President Putin changed the law to allow Minatom to import and store nuclear waste from any country willing to pay the horrendous storage rate. In April 2001, activists came from 30 Russian cities to gather in Red Square. Their placards called attention to many Russian nuclear waste dumps, that had already been declared leaking and unsafe. Hundreds of peaceful protesters were attacked and beaten-up by boy soldiers practicing the Karate skills. Of the two hundred arrested and taken from the square. None were charged with any offence! Along with the Queen and her ministers, Putin and his ministers will deny their Swiss bank accounts are the main beneficiaries of the totally needless nuclear waste trade.
Waiting To Happen
Reactor No 4.Chernobyl. "Over-heated and flipped it's lid..." " It was a steam explosion. A nuclear explosion would have been a million times worse."
Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station covers an area the size of six-soccer-fields. Reactor No 4, above, could be likened to a gigantic kettle standing forty-feet high. Made of twelve-feet-thick steel, with millions of gallons of water on the boil. The kettles elements were 1,661 six-foot-tall uranium fuel rods arranged in ascending circles. Miles of integrated stainless-steel water-channels carried the heat from the (white-hot) fuel rods. Over 200 tons of black graphite bricks supported the metalwork. The water came in from eight enormous high-pressure-pumps.
A reactor this size needs nine tons of water every 60 seconds. Nine tons of steam leaves the reactor every minute. The steam drives the Turbines generating 1,000 Mega-watts of electricity (enough for ten million 100-watt. light-bulbs) The safe working temperature of Reactor No. 4 was 600 degrees Centigrade.
When uranium fuel passes its melting point (2,700 Centigrade) it can double it's temperature as it melts. Going from 2,700 to 5,400 to 10,800 to 21,600 and so on, quicker than you can do the maths.
April 26 1986. No. 4 went out of control. This happened because the Automatic Temperature Control had been illegally disabled to speed-up safety checks!
Imagine the operator's sat in the control room watching all two-hundred of No 4's temperature gauges flying into the red. They were powerless as
the surge of nuclear heat vaporized miles of stainless steel water channels into expanding gas. Walls of black graphite bricks turned white and disintegrated. Thousands of tons of water flashed into super-heated-steam.
Within seconds of the operators realizing something was wrong, an almighty explosion tossed the 2,000-ton concrete reactor lid up in the air like an old penny.
It somersaulted and landed on top of the reactor, balanced on its edge (top right) Oxygen rushed in causing a spectacular series of explosions. Shooting out blazing lumps of melting nuclear waste. Aircraft reported some lumps went one-mile-high. Erupting cascades of flaming nuclear waste started thirty more deadly toxic fires. Radiation warning klaxons screamed from the roof of every building in the sprawling nuclear complex. Every fire engine within 50 miles answered the call to Chernobyl Power Station.
Fourteen hours later. The smaller fires were all under control but the reactor fire was failing to respond to the millions of gallons of water high-pressure-fire-hoses were pouring on it.
An Emergency meeting was in progress at the Kremlin. The Politburo heard their top nuclear scientists explain how the increasing temperature could cause a fast-chain-reaction. At one-million-degrees-Centigrade (super-critical) all the nuclear atoms in the blazing reactor could split in unison. Causing a nuclear explosion that would blast Chernobyl's other three reactors into atoms. Sending over 800 tons of eternally fatal fall-out up in a mushroom cloud. Prevailing winds would have brought tons of fall-out to Moscow. The Politburo were left in no doubt Moscow would become a nuclear ghost town.
Kremlin scientists ordered-in squadrons of helicopters to bomb the fire with ten-ton-loads of wet sand and clay, limestone, and chunks of boron-carbide steel.
The chunks of steel would slow down the splitting nuclear-atoms and lessen the risk of a fast-chain-reaction. Limestone when burned releases carbon dioxide, which would starve the fire of oxygen.
The wet sand and clay was intended to form a heat-sink to trap some of the fatal fall-out.
May 3. Geiger-counters recorded the radioactive release was steadily increasing. So was the temperature! The attempt to smother the fire was apparently feeding it.
It seemed the sacrifice of over 2,000 fire fighters, who, by this time, had received fatal doses of radiation, had all been for nothing...
May 6. By the Grace of God, the Geiger-counters slowed down...
One year later the remains of the molten nuclear fuel had cooled and set like warm volcanic lava. Scientists found 70 tons of the original 204 tons of fuel had escaped [become lighter than air and quite literally gone-up in smoke] Chernobyl was surrounded by farmland.
By 1994, fall-out-poisoned Collective Farms and nearly 2,000 villages covering an area the size of Wales had been abandoned - forever.
A small part of Chernobyl's backyard,
the size of Wales, where time has stopped.
Abandoned radioactive helicopters, trucks and boats used in the attempted clean-up. The clean-up itself had to be abandoned because the clean-up workers became to sick to work. Hundreds of large collective farms, 2,000 towns and villages - and the nuclear poisoned land they now stand on - had to be abandoned forever.
The mechanical fault at Three Mile Island, Pennsylvania USA, was actually more terrifying than Chernobyl. Ten years after Three Mile Island and three years after Chernobyl poisoned an area the size of Wales Queen Lizzy ordered Sizewell B!
Human error caused the accident at Chernobyl. What happened at Three Mile Island can never be avoided! Mechanical failures are deemed, legally, an Act Of God. Had Pennsylvania been poisoned and evacuated. All and every insurance claim would have been null and void! You should not need a cleric to tell you. Building nuclear power station’s spits in the face of all that is Holy. Nuclear power murders God's Earth - and everything on it.
In April 1986 Chernobyl power station released 300 times more nuclear radiation than the Hiroshima bomb. 2,000 villages in Belarus and The Ukraine had to be abandoned. Fall-out in the water supply means the majority of Chernobyl victims have yet to be born! Tens of thousands if not millions of Russians, like the child in the photo, will pay the price of one small leak from a Nuclear Power Station.
