Major outbreak common sense in Canberra. ABC reported late yesterday – Australia to get nuclear-powered submarines, will scrap $90b program to build French-designed subs and this morning are running an update – Australia to acquire nuclear submarine fleet as part of historic deal with US and UK to counter China’s influence 16Sep2021
PM ScoMo is saying this is not a move to nuclear power and we will still honour the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Australia needs to grow up but with an election due so soon nuc electricity generation would be a bridge too far for ScoMo. By now the ABC will be assembling a research team to use all these various issues against the Govt to help Labor win the 2021 Federal election. I have initial concerns we are nodding in two directions re the subs – I would prefer a more simple “just acquire tried & proven US nuc subs however and get them operating out of downunder”. And of course we should work towards acquiring nuclear weapons capacity.
