Sham consultation (whatever next?)

Well done to Greenpeace and other bodies including the Green Party that all contributed to the high court victory this week, when judges ruled that the government's consultation into a new generation of nuclear power stations was misleading", "seriously flawed" and "procedurally unfair".

Green Party Principal Speaker Siân Berry today described the court's decision as "one nil against the nuclear lobby." Hurray! (but it doesn't mean that we won't still get a new generation of nuclear power stations). Dodgy consultation hey, whoever heard of such a thing . . .
