Bradwell: UK’s ill-conceived nuclear project, with cronyism and vested interests, will damage environment.

Bradwell B Action Network 24th Jan 2021,  Appeal to Prime Minster, Foreign and Energy Ministers, selected MP’s and Essex County Councillors to Reconsider Chinese State Plans for Essex Nuclear Power Plant by local community. Bradwell B Action Network (BAN), a front-line grass roots campaign organisation, sent a strong message to the Prime Minster and other representatives including the government energy and
foreign ministers and their opposites, pointing out a broad range of concerns and urging them to take immediate action to halt CGN’s plans for the Bradwell B nuclear plant.
Time is of the essence if important local heritage is not to be destroyed before the UK government’s Security and Investment Bill comes into being. Local district and county councillors were also copied into the email. The email appeal, which went out late Thursday 21st January is provided below [on original]. Not included in the appeal email but related (and maybe of interest to you in context of this press release) is recent written evidence to the Foreign Affairs Committee by China expert Martin Thorley.
This evidence throws a troubling light on how cronyism and big money interests led to the decision to allow CGN to invest in our nuclear energy in the first place, despite security service concerns being raised at the time.  Martin’s written evidence submission makes for interesting reading, exposing as it does both high profile individuals and commercial organisations with serious conflicts of interest in this matter.
As always, it pays to follow the money! Among the concerns raised in the email are the proximity of major infrastructure and strategic assets to the planned plant, which the Chinese
State owned CGN are planning to build and operate. The site, at Bradwell on Sea, Essex is also within 30km range of large urban populations to the North, West and South. Despite UK security services raising concerns over the plans, consecutive Conservative governments have chosen to ignore the threats and allow CGN to pursue this ill-conceived project.
