Blimey! Only the most densely-populated part of the UK, and first in line if, heaven forbid, we ever get invaded again (I take the long view).

Everyone knows that the population in the SE is denser than it is up here in Yorkshire. Just saying, like Smile (erm, but don't tell those nice nuclear people, will you?..)

Leave Yorkshire out of this conversation please, I'm hoping the toxic dump people will forget us. If it has to go somewhere the SE is the best place. London? SW1A 0AA?

It's also one of the first places to flood when sea levels rise. It only takes a metre rise to flood most of it and 2 metres makes Dunguness an island.

This is just down the road from us.... The ground is always waterlogged there, can't see why it would be a good site to store nuclear waste. Better to stop producing it I think... or else give everyone in favour of new nuclear their own small lead-lined container of high level waste to store at home.
