    My best mate was a metallurgist working for Clarke Chapman (later taken over by Rolls Royce) who designed the original British nuclear AGR (ADVANCED GAS COOLED REACTOR) I asked him why they eventually went for pressurised water cooled reactors and he told me that the British design was far better and safer than the PWR, but it was too expensive.

    Hi cappy,
    Most of us know Gordon Brown sold our gold reserves very cheaply.
    I look upon Mr Brown as a rather compassionate person. One must give him credit for saving the banks. He bailed them out by putting millions of public money into them to save them from going bankrupt.
    The Americans at first mocked him for doing this, but after a while they too followed suit.
    Not only did he save banks in this country, his idea saved banks world wide during the money crisis.

    Fouro.

    As the bill to privatise the water industry in England and Wales was going through parliament, I interviewed Dr Cunningham for a political programme called Agenda transmitted by Television South. Dr Cunningham (now Baron Cunningham of Felling) said it was appalling that a natural resource like water should be put in the hands of people with a profit motive. It was unbelievable, he said, that the provision of such a resource should be subjected to commercial criteria like any other commodity. He thought the ultimate losers would be the public.


    Twenty-eight years later, in 2017, opinion polling indicated that 83% of the British public would like to see renationalisation of all water services. In the same year, research by the University of Greenwich suggested that consumers in England were paying 2.3bn more every year for their water and sewerage than they would be if the water companies had remained under state ownership. As the disaster of water privatisation becomes ever clearer, I think Lord Cunningham has every reason to say: “I told you so.”
