Whitehaven CID rang up a home address last week to ask if Cumbria anti nuclear groups were planning large protests at Sellafield. Thought for the day was "chance would be a fine thing!"
Their call out of the blue made no sense at all until the news that there is to be a full scale, fully armed pyrotechnic 'exercise' starting this week A cynical person might suspect they would have liked some real Cumbrian people to play with.
Peaceful protestors V full scale, fully armed "pyrotechnics" ie explosives. State sanctioned explosions and heavily armed unaccountable special police near Sellafield? - the threat to Cumbria's safety does not come from peaceful protest. Cumbria is beginning to realise the diabolic implications of geological disposal and new build in the vicinity of the worlds largest stockpiles of nuke waste but has some catching up to do with regard anti nuclear activity. In Germany there have been anti nuclear demonstrations numbering over 100,000 people opposing extending the life of existing nuclear plants. The German police seem to have far less Orwellian tendencies and have not found the need to hold six weeklong fully armed pyrotechnical exercises around German nuclear plants.

Civil Nuclear Constabulary is expanding their force, already a £50million-a-year budget, it will have more officers and take over policing other power stations, critical telecom buildings, gas installations, fuel dumps, airports and other "key terror targets".£50M buys a lot of pyrotechnicshttp://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cumbria-11661016
