News from Mannin Branch of the Celtic League:
This month marks the sixtieth anniversary of the Windscale Fire and the nuclear plant on the Cumbria coast:
I’ve heard little mention of it from our media – perhaps I wasn’t listening close enough.
Windscale was a pivotal event ending the honeymoon over thoughts of cheap clean nuclear energy – in fact it was a cover for nuclear bomb making.
Does the event matter now? I think it does because many think the plant, the accident, the notorious Island experiment involving controlled release of radioactive waste and the later leaks caused a high incidence of cancer on the Island and near the plant.
Of course governments deny any link but when’s the last time you believed anything the government told you?
