N-waste opinion poll criticised
Last updated at 11:47, Thursday, 21 June 2012
THE opinion poll into West Cumbrian people’s views on a search for somewhere to bury highly radioactive nuclear waste has been dismissed by a university think tank.
Have your say
There seems to be some ignorance as to what an opinion poll is. The likes of IPSOS MORI are perfeectly capable of putting together a struictured sample that gives a representative result - far more so than a few parish councillors, many of whom got on unopposed, i.e. representing only themselves.
Regardless of consultation the Repository will be built near Sellafield.What should be of concern is the eventual multiple the final cost will be over that projected relative to the level given for approval. It already has a 100% contingency admitted, but is unlikely to be enough.Every project related to Sellafield has cost multiples over the original estimates.
There is a petition opposing the diabolic plan to dump radioactive wastes under Cumbria.Please support and circulate..http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/save-lakeland-no-nukiller-dump/
