The Green Party’s election time meeting in Woodbridge, on Sizewell C, was well attended, and finally got in the Anglian newspaper, but only after the election (!). The headine however got the message: “Nuclear industry is facing a slow death”...
The platform was: Eamon O’Nolan, Suffolk Coastal Greens, Baroness Jenny Jones, national Green Party, environmentalist Tim Nunn, Professor Andy Blowers, local Professor John Midwinter and Regan Scott, SAGE, TASC, FOE. Thanks to supporting groups.
TEAGS’ very well attended election husting on Sizewell C was a quiet affair without local MP Theresa Coffey actually turning up. She cited the second election period terror incident. A distinct note was struck by an audience member, a paramedic, describing how totally run-down and inadequate emergency services are for the existing nuclear facilities.
Meanwhile local councillors are believed to be rushing round to find new dispersed sites for the workers’ camps, while the Anglian reports that the four villages bypass campaign’s Lord Marlesford (former Tory Party grandee) has stated that EDF have found new funding for what is now called the Energy Gateway. The Anglian reports that he was told EDF “would contribute equivalent funding for the two villages bypass towards the new scheme”, whatever that means.
