A Turkey voting for Christmas?

Let us get one thing straight about Hinkley Point C nuclear station.  It does not follow that PM Theresa May’s approval to build means that we shall (in that immortal phrase ) definitely be cooking our Christmas turkeys with its power in 2025.

Chinese Checkmate

My many devoted readers will not have been as surprised as apparently everybody else was that a change of Prime Minister has led to a serious re-think about the security implications of the Cameron Government’s open-door policy towards Chinese nuclear investment.

Electrical Safety in the Private Rented Sector is poor. In 2014, 16% of private rented sector tenants in England experienced problems with electrical hazards, which equates to nearly 1.5 million people living with unsafe electrics. Coupled with the fact that 5,622 accidental domestic fires were caused by electrical distribution systems in 2014/15, the scale of this risk is greater than most people perceive.

Half angel, half bird

My many thousands of devoted readers will recall I have long been sceptical about the practical effects of the government’s Contracts for Difference flagship scheme. All too often it has been a case of the taxpayer generously subsidising electricity generation that would have occurred regardless. So, just nice little earners for supply companies.
