Re: EU Ref

The problem is, you can't put the genie back into the bottle. When almost 30% of the voters can't be bothered to vote for something so important, what chance is there. But this was fairly predictable, given the question asked - because in a binary choice there is always more inclination to vote for...

He's changed it by deed poll. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/people/michael-caine-name-change-deed-poll-isis-...

I'm not against nuclear power in principle. I think it's a cleaner, more efficient, and more sustainable means of electricity production than burning fossil fuels and with more capacity, control and reliability than most of the 'green' alternatives.
