Nuclear news (UK/Germany)

This article suggests that the UK new nuclear-build programme is wobbling.

Meanwhile, I suspect public anti-nuclear opinion in Germany is so strong that no-one would seriously suggest a new nuclear-build programme, although following the recent elections the new government, while fundamentally honouring the agreed nuclear exit strategy, is likely to grant extensions to the agreed residual operating times for (at least some of the) existing plants.

The article on p. 3/4 of the current edition of Nuclear Monitor contains more details.
