    Peaceful protest really? That’s why scum are ripping fences down and acting like animals eh. Many arrests have been made, quite rightly so. Why don’t you lot go and get jobs and stop sponging off benefits and while your at it, some of you look like you haven’t had a wash in years!!

      Hi there,
      What a fine argument in favour of leaving current and future generations a toxic legacy – Bravo! we just had to make sure that your comment is included our website so that people can see for themselves the finest pro-nuclear arguments that can be mustered.

      And yes it was a peaceful protest. Lets not pull any punches over who is really behaving badly here – EDFs plans to trash over 400 acres of ecologically sensitive countryside without permission to build reactors is the real bad behaviour, a few pieces of Heras fencing are not the issue.

      We wouldnt dream of claiming that EDF are behaving like animals – we have far more respect for animals than to make such a comparison – but scum? yes EDF are quite scummy in our book!

      As for many arrests being made, maybe you might like to check your facts with the police before making such claims, as there were no arrests during the rally, surround or blockade. Apparently one person was cautioned and given an on the spot fine after the blockade although it presently remains unclear as to what the alleged offence was as most people had by that time gone home.

      With respect to peoples employment status this event was held at the weekend precisely so that working people would be able to attend.

      Current government policy is creating more and more unemployment as successive governments fail to step up to the plate and face the fact that you cant have infinite growth on a finite planet. Furthermore people who are not in paid employment do not forgo their right to be politically engaged or to live breath eat and have shelter!
      EDF are certainly not the benevolent social service that their propaganda machine would try & persuade local people that they are, and their claims of job creation are a far cry from reality i,e there will be very few jobs created, most of these going to a more skilled imported workforce. Most of these jobs are temporary (i,e just during construction) and the disruption this project will cause to local businesses and local communities will probably cost more jobs than are created as jobs are lost as a direct result.

      Further, based on our own experiences of the protest we’d also like to point out that we feel that just one of the people who came this weekend washed or unwashed would be worth hundreds of yourself based on their capacity for intellect, compassion, altruism and emotional intelligence.

      Please do come back and try to make some more substantial arguments in favour of nuclear power.

      Also good luck with getting to the bottom of whatever it really is that is making you so unhappy.

    TRY AND GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT ABOUT NUCLEAR BEFORE SPOUTING YOUR SHIT. AND AS FOR PEOPLE WEREN’T ARRESTED, OF COURSE YOU WOULD DENY THAT TO MAKE YOUR PATHETIC CAUSE LOOK PERFECT. I THINK IT’S YOURSELF WHO NEEDS TO GET THEIR FACTS STRAIGHT. GO BACK TO YOUR SAD PATHETIC LIFE AND LOOK AFTER YOUR CHILDREN RATHER THAN PUTTING THEM IN DANGER AT PROTESTS AND SQUATTING AT BUILDING WHICH ARE ABOUT TO COLLAPSE!!
