The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Britains aging nuclear veterans get a few crumbs from government

Mean-Spirited UK Finally Throws a Few Shared Crumbs at Elderly UK Atomic Veterans Mining Awareness, 22 Mar 15 The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped.”Hubert H. Humphrey [1]

Victims of British Nuclear Tests have fought for decades for some recognition of their illnesses, along with some financial compensation. The UK government has now offered money to be shared with all aging veterans. Why do veterans, especially the elderly ones, have to get the run around? The US also viciously gives the run around to elderly atomic veterans who have the wrong type of cancer. Why are they so mean-spirited? Just give the veterans their damn money! They were drafted and/or trying to serve their country. The UK and the US waste tons of money. Stop subsidizing the nuclear and petroleum industries for a start. Only a few days ago the UK proposed lower taxes for petroleum companies in the North Sea.
