China and our nuclear power - NOT amateur radio

So the UK government is to "guarantee" China's £2 billion investment in a new nuclear reactor at Hinkley Point in Somerset. So, we are happy for China to be involved, have access to all our nuclear details? We must be desperate! Investing in better insulation, clean renewables etc. would render this totally unnecessary.

And what about the spent fuels that need safe storage for a very very long time?

The Chinese are laughing at us in all directions, just like they did when John Towers went cap in hand thinking they were going to save Rover, they led him and his team of Directors up the garden path to find out the real story behind the groups problems, then just waited till it all went bust! Then had the plans and rights to everything and took it all back to China, we have just lost the plot!

Nuclear like everything else we just don't have the expertise any longer even if we have lead the field in it all in the past. Even if we did, we couldn't bring it in on time, and on price!

Spent fuel rods and stuff I guess will still be dumped in Cumbria, they won't want the rubbish sending back to China..
