Peer pressure: Lord Egremont puts nuclear new-build on hold

WORK to pave the way for Copeland’s planned new nuclear power station has been delayed – by a lordly intervention.

Have your say

well, he could donate the money to local development of a different nature; he doesn't have to be greedy and keep it. old poor max, doesn't have enough to play with...

Lord Egremont has every right to protect his assets or investments. I am sure that Mr Reed would was also take advantage of this unique investment if he was in the same position. You don't get anything for nothing and I hardly think Mr Reed is in a position to request Lord Egremont to forego what is due to him so that others can make a profit.

If it was a plebs land they would just issue a compulsory purchase order.

Lord Egremont does right, After all he does have the legitimate claim to any minerals found,and all he's doing is protecting his interests just like the rest of us would do if we were of such a privilidged position.Iam suprised though that councillor Woodbe isnt threatening compulsory purchase, and if Jedi Jamie interveens as threatend it can almost be gauranteed things will only get rapidly worse.
By the way Tom Tom after reading many of your views i can only conclude its you that might want to get out and about a bit more often?.

Typical, only a local person could blame the council for sand and gravel under ground ,get a life

First the miners and now a Lord putting a spanner in the works for Copeland Council. A labour council having trouble with both the workers and the toffs, how's that for social inclusion or is it exclusion. Are they taking a rise?
