A recent self-congratulatory PR campaign by France’s EDF to hail the completion of Hinkley Point C’s foundations (five years behind schedule) while submitting plans to build another UK nuclear plant, Sizewell C — coupled with a 30 May Financial Times article entitled “Britain needs new nuclear, and the government should fund it” — really angered me.

It is time to call in the Resistance, and point out the absurdity of these positions.
