Nuclear power - yes, please!
But I think it is a monstrous own goal by the 'Scottish Government' to be so hostile to the concept of nuclear power. Thousands of jobs will be created building and operating new power stations which will move energy production away from fossil fuels and will consequently reduce carbon emissions. None of these jobs, however, will be created in Scotland, and the SNP administration is preening itself on this fact. Not only will Scotland miss out on these jobs, but Scotland also faces a bleak future in terms of its ability to produce sufficient power.
