    They should never have been banned. The biggest problem with the gun laws is the police who do everything possible to say no to any application. They bitch and moan that it is "taking resources"...

    You seem quite adamant that nuclear is the only answer. If that is so then you have to give the developing countries the power stations for free and we will have to pay for it. I agree completely...

    The costs of the Iraq war are hidden in the respect that they come from taxation. Decommissioning old nuclear plant is the same, it is tax not actual cost on the electric consumer. I have to agree...
