Government have no intention of closing down places like Sellafield, On the contrary the Queen wants to build ten more!!!! And just to prove the loonies are running the asylum she will also order more utterly futile Trident nuclear submarine missile systems.
After his dismissal from Her Majesty's
Foreign Office and the way he was studiously ignored over Iraq. Robin Cook was a time bomb ticking in the middle of the Queen’s oil and nuclear cartel. Of all our anti nuclear MP’s Cook was the only one with the intellect to probe who profits from nuclear waste and lay the facts before Parliament. Such a move would have brought down his own government along with the worthless monarchy. Considering the needless slaughter in Iraq,
was he about to do just that?

Down at Aldermaston they are spending hundreds of millions of pounds of your money on a refit of the production line for nuclear warheads. We are assured this does not mean that any decision has been made to replace the Trident nuclear system. Dear me no, the investment is merely intended to keep open our options.
It was Jim Callaghan who first struck the Trident deal with President Carter, eccentrically in a beach hut on Guadeloupe. The justification was that we faced, in the Soviet Union, a great hostile bear bristling with nuclear claws. The missiles were put on submarines precisely because the ocean bed was the only place they could hide from Russian firepower.
The collapse of the cold war has removed even the theoretical justification for our possessing strategic nuclear weapons. However, the spirit of the cold war lives on in the minds of those who need an enemy to buttress their own identity. Hence the vacuum left by the cold war has been filled by George Bush's global war on terror.
But nuclear weapons are hopelessly irrelevant to that terrorist threat. Investment in a new strategic nuclear system would be worse than an irrelevance.
Britain's most valuable role in global stability is the professional, experienced contribution of our soldiers to peacekeeping missions, which earns us much more goodwill round the world than our nuclear submarines prowling the seas.
The world would be less stable and Britain would be less secure if we were to trade in even more of our army units for son-of-Trident. It is not just peaceniks who would oppose such a choice. I suspect a clear majority of the officer corps would vote against diverting the defence budget into another generation of nuclear weapons.
Trident missiles are not even owned by us, but are leased from the Pentagon in an arrangement that Denis Healey once dubbed as "rent-a-rocket".
Renewing our collaboration with the US on nuclear weapons will deepen the bonds between Downing Street and the White House, at the very time when the rest of the nation longs for a more independent stance.
It is therefore against Britain's national interests to replace Trident. It is also against our international obligations, notably the commitment in the non-proliferation treaty to proceed in good faith to nuclear disarmament.
More nations have given up nuclear weapons over the past generation than have developed them. Brazil and Argentina negotiated a treaty to terminate their rival nuclear programmes. Ukraine and other former Soviet states renounced the nuclear capacity they inherited. South Africa, post-apartheid, abandoned its nuclear programme and dismantled its weapon capacity.
None of those countries regards itself as any less secure than before. Nor need we, if our leadership can find the courage to let Trident be the end of Britain's futile and costly obsession with nuclear-weapon status.
Worse than irrelevant. Robin Cook
