That needs huge amount of subsidies, and is so capital intensive it threatens the very existence of companies that build them?

Yes.

If it works - everyone wins.
If it fails - fuck them, they're cunts and deserve to go bankrupt.

The problem is that companies like EDF, because of the risks, demand huge guaranteed prices for literally decades to ensure they get their money back. Its bullshit.

The greenest, easiest, cheapest solution of all... just control immigration.

The failure to exercise basic lateral thinking will be this country's downfall.

Instead of asking 'how do we provide power for our soaring population?' we should be asking 'why is it soaring? Is this sensible?'

Except that our total energy use is dropping, and has been for a long time, even while population has risen.

Whether that is true or not, it still follows that fewer people = less power needed = fewer power stations.

The expensive Chinese nuclear power station we're getting, for example, wouldn't be needed.

Fewer people on this small island would either mitigate substantially, or solve entirely, many problems.
