Welcome news re Sellafield

I am pleased to see that the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority has announced that Sellafield is in contention to be a possible site for a new nuclear power station.

If it happens this will be excellent news for West Cumbria and will have very strong local support throughout the political spectrum.

However, it is not a done deal - you do not get nuclear power stations built just by making an announcement. That is why we need together, accross the political divide, to ensure that the necessary difficult decisions such as how to upgrade the national grid are taken.
