Did anyone catch the extremely combative interview on Today this morning at 7.31am between Ed Davey and John Humphyrs? It concerned the welcome news that a new buyer of Horizon, the UK’s nuclear power building project, has been found – and is planning to build a range of new power stations across the country.
Naturally the BBC editorial line is to object to this and Humphyrs went after Davey with a vengeance, repeatedly insinuating that there was some deal or “understanding” on future pricing between Government and Hitachi (the new owner). Davey actually fought back, contradicted Humphyrs and the interview was all the more enjoyable for it. It seems as if the luddites at the BBC would rather see the lights go out across Britain in a few years rather than embrace the benefits of Nuclear.
