    Default Where to put a geological disposal facility (Nuclear Dump)?

    Interesting study from the National Geological in the UK on suitable locations for geological disposal facility (GDF) in the North.

    https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national...pDxJihCe0o3nFE

    We have divided the Northern Ireland region into four subregions.
    Click on the links below for more information on the relevance to the safety of a GDF for a subregion.
    •Northern Ireland - Subregion 1
    •Northern Ireland - Subregion 2
    •Northern Ireland - Subregion 3
    •Northern Ireland - Subregion 4
    GDF??

    Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) for higher-activity radioactive waste
    The UK government is committed to implementing geological disposal for the safe and secure management of higher-activity radioactive waste over the long term.
    Hopefully the landowners will be compensated for their governments use of the land..

    And the vote in favour of a UI just swung up another 8 points

    If the Brits keep this up the eventual Border Poll will pass with 70%+ with only elderly insane religious fundamentalist loons near Ballymena voting against.

    Maybe that's the point.

    What position will the DUP take on this. Surely the most loyal thing to do would be offer Arlenes back yard.

    They'll have to come up with new terminology to describe their opposition given that "nuclear red line" had already been used:

    "The BBC reports that while the pro-Brexit DUP would disapprove of an all-UK arrangement on customs, only the regulatory aspect of such a deal would cross their “nuclear” red line that Northern Ireland must be treated in the same way as the rest of the UK."

    DUP could vote down the Budget over Brexit deal | Open Europe

    Well they can't use Scotland because they used Scotland for testing out the poll tax. And they wont want gently glowing pheasant and grouse on the moors as it takes the fun out of for the royals in blasting the birds out of the air if they are lit up like christmas trees against a glowering sky.

    So Northern Ireland it is. The advantage is that Theresa May can tell Arlene and the Popular Front of DUPea that jesus appeared to her in a dream and told her that the nuclear waste dump would have to be in Northern Ireland. And that way Arlene can't oppose it because its what Nuclear Jesus would have wanted.

    It's just a trade off in return for a giant bronze badger with clockwork moving ears going on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square.

    I'm sure they won't disloyal like those traitors in Crumbria..

    Cumbria nuclear project rejected by councillors - BBC News

    Plans to look for a site for a £12bn underground nuclear waste store in Cumbria have been rejected.
    Cumbria County Council vetoed an advanced "stage four" search for a site for the radioactive waste facility.
    The stage included detailed geological investigations and discussions over the social and economic implications.
    The Department for Energy and Climate Change said it was "disappointed" but the no vote would not "undermine" the long-term disposal of nuclear waste.

    Since 2001 in Northern Ireland and 2012 in the Republic, the grid has become increasingly interconnected with the neighbouring electric grid of Britain, and therefore Ireland is now partly powered by overseas nuclear fission stations.[2][3]


    Happy to take the electricity but not the waste.
    We appreciate the move by the Government today and remind ourselves that it is a bail-out by taxpayers for the banks. Pearse Doherty
