Blank cheques to EDF?

“Barclays, which forecasts stagnant earnings per share growth and negative free cash flow for EDF, doubts the French state will approve the above-inflation price increases the company needs for nuclear power plant upgrades.”

But more importantly than that, even IF the government agrees to a secrecy clause and blank cheques from British taxpayers to the french government via EDF they still won’t start building on time because

“Even if EDF finds a new partner, it will have no interest in starting the project early, as its cash flow is needed in France”

    Check the sticky history of this energy giant.. it’s not surprising what they’re attempting
