Bring it on!

The UK government is planning to build new nuclear power stations.

According to their consultation document, one of the top proposed sites is just outside Brighton.

For those that don't know, Brighton is the core of crustiedom. Anarchists and freedom fighters have sallied forth from there to such (unsuccesful) battles as Manchester Airport, the Newbury Bypass and Stop the City, not to mention the (succesful) Poll Tax Riot.

Trying to build a nuclear power station 10 miles outside the town is just going to be the trigger for the biggest uprising since 1649. It might even radicalise enough people to start a real alternative force in British politics.

Only in England could you get a poll tax riot.

;-)

I am interested to see how this develops.
