I recieved a letter from Tim Farron MP following questions from Radiation Free Lakeland on the trade from the UK in nuclear materials to Russia. The letter repeats a message from the Foreign Office that ‘all is well’ as the uranium going to Russia from the UK is merely for “civil” uranium. Thats ok then? Or is it. The Chernobyl disaster may well have involved materials sent from the UK. The world’s first nuclear fuel manufacturing plant was sending nuclear materials to the Soviet Union during the cold war. These nuclear materials included uranium hexaflouride which can go one of two ways to reactors or to make bombs. Kind of makes a mockery of Raymond Briggs classic comic book “When the Wind Blows” which was based on the “Russkies” coming to bomb the bejesus out of us. We were sold a lie.
