Going to cost 70B pounds!

The costs of decommissioning and reprocessing at the Sellafield nuclear site are soaring to “astonishing” levels, with latest estimates putting the figure at more than £70bn, according to a committee of MPs.
Progress at the site in Cumbria had been “poor”, with targets missed, costs “escalating” and timescales slipping, according to a report from the Public Accounts Committee.
The MPs have made a series of recommendations, calling on the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) to terminate the contract of private consortium Nuclear Management Partners (NMP) if its performance did not improve.
The report said the consortium had been brought in six years ago to help Sellafield improve its performance and had its contract extended last October despite “spiralling costs and poor performance”.
Margaret Hodge, who chairs the committee, said costs were rising to astonishing levels, such as the doubling to £729m of one project on storage silos over 18 months to last September, while another project had been put back six years to 2023.

Ah yes, more expensive to tear down and cart away than to build them.

See.......governments (all of them) waste so much money, especially on bombing others........why can't they actually use that money to do things that would benefit their people and the world?

I wish we could (us voters and taxpayers) decide where the money we give goes........ but that has never happened, anywhere in the world......

Sadly, too many people these days are not taught what is needed to make informed enough decisions to vote on such matters. Here folks are scared with propaganda that social programs are the dreaded precursor to communism, socialism! Gods forbid that taxpayers money is actually spent to help your neighbors instead of our Military Industrial Complex, or the Big Corporates! OR frivolous lawsuits at taxpayers' expense to try and discredit a leader who is doing what they wanted, The corporates and Uber rich lead by the Kochs have done this to Americans for the past 40years, hence why folks do not do as well voting, voter turn out is so low, and they vote based on the campaign commercials of personality traits, never issues, just party lines.  Too many will state they are voting Party A just because their Dad and their grand dad voted that way.  Hence why we get such boondoggles in our countries.

Yes Len. It is much the same throughout the western world. The people are dumbed down so that they are compliant and docile. That fear of Communism is rife here too yet there has never been a Communist State anywhere in the world ever. They were/are Fascist.

Yes! They all stopped at best at stage 2 of the proposed concept, that of changing the state apparatus. Stalin saw at that point had he gone to stage 3 and 4 that he would be just another member of the population working on consensus building to make things as needed, instead at stage 2 he discovered he wished to be the king, and as it is "good to be the king" he made sure he stayed such till he died years later. Then others were such and Russia never moved past stage 2, none of the "communist" states ever got past that fascist stage 2 of the Marxist concept of shifting power away from heirarchal cultures with a power structure to the decentralized people run concept he envisioned as a purer form of Democracy. I see that due to Greed and power hunger that humanity is yet to be able to get past stage 2 if it were tried again, perhaps far in the future a more altruistic humanity might shift to such a governing by equals of equals. But not yet in the present.
