I've long been a critic of the practice of Big 6 and other related corporations being seconded into senior and influential roles at DECC. Of course DECC is now gone, but this decision, among many are the legacy.  When absolutely no one, even Nuclear supporters see the merit or viability of this project, you have to question why it goes ahead. Politics and money seems the only conclusion.

Sadly I can't see anything now stopping construction of this colossal white elephant, nor can I see it ever being completed. In the meantime though the tax payer pays, and genuine innovative technology and important energy possibilities are contained and delayed. It all leaves me speechless.
