Quote:

Mr Benn told the programme that civil servants in his department kept the deals secret from him and his predecessor, Frank Cousins.

He had always suspected that civil servants were doing deals behind his back, but he never thought they would sell plutonium to Israel. He told Newsnight: "I'm not only surprised, I'm shocked. It never occurred to me they would authorise something so totally against the policy of the government.

"Michaels lied to me, I learned by bitter experience that the nuclear industry lied to me again and again.


Maybe this is why I don't trust nuclear power - because it is 'big science'.
Run by high powered people with big egos and questionable loyalty.

As I get older the less I trust TPTB to tell the truth, in fact my first
assumption will be that they are lying, or only telling the truth when
it matches their own agenda.

Let the flames begin

Very Happy
