British nuclear plants to be sold to Halliburton?

Increasingly Blair seems to be an agent of the American military-Industrial complex.

It is not just parts of the Ministry of Defence and parts of the Health Service that are reportedly being sold to American big business, it is also parts of the Nuclear Industry.


Terry Macalister, in The Guardian, 30 September 2005 (The Guardian) writes that Blair's Labour government may sell British nuclear plants to American firms such as Halliburton.

"Operations at Sellafield and other major nuclear plants such as Sizewell and Dungeness are to be sold off to the private sector for more than £10bn under plans drawn up yesterday by the board of British Nuclear Fuels Ltd (BNFL).

"American companies such as Halliburton and Fluor are seen as likely contenders in any race to take over British Nuclear Group, which is the main operating arm of the government-owned BNFL, handling nuclear generation, reprocessing and clean-up businesses."

BNG runs a dozen atomic sites, some with relatively new reactors such as Sizewell B in Suffolk.
