What a sad state UK is in. None of its domestic enterprises wish to invest in this potentially lucrative deal so it left the French hanging for so long that the only people that are willing to invest and build are the Chinese.

The title should be first non-nationalize nuclear power plant that's partially owned by the Chinese in UK. How the once mighty had fallen to such sad state.

Decommissioning Sellafield is costing an unknown amount of money, and will take an unknown length of time, yet their building another one? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cumbria-21298117

The technology being used is totally different than that used in Fukushima. It's too bad Toshiba is not building the plant.

Does Toshiba have a solution to Fukushima leaks?

I care.

And why would they build it where the prevailing winds will carry radiation from a nuclear accident right across England, including London???

For that matter, why not build it on London's doorstep? Are these things dangerous?

highball7 and Tigerta9. There is nothing to be sad about the Brits not get a go at the deal, It's a matter of which bidder offers the best deal, price and completion time. 16 Billion pound is not a small sum for any British company and EDF undertook it at their risk.

It's not the Brits that don't get it.

curious to know what it is we brits dont get about it.Is it the joy of having a potential enviramental disaster on our front door steps or is it the inner peace that comes from knowing that for the next 30/40 years we are paying twice the present market rate for the electricity it will be producing in subsudies to the company that is building it (plus they will also be charging the consumers as well) as a sweetner so they will shell out the initial costs. Costs which it claims are much to prohibitive for the government to build it self in the present ecconomic climate.
