    Crazy Scots all atwitter over a little hole

    The Brits, not knowing how to properly dispose of their nuclear hulks, have decided to take a page from the Russians, and just let them deteriorate dockside. Apparently, one of them, the HMS Revenge (an aptly named Polaris SSBN) developed a little bitty hole in a ballast tank and had to be patched up. This led one of the geniuses of the British environmental movement, Stuart Hay (Friends of the Earth Scotland), to say, "This just goes to show the madness of going ahead with a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK."

    I suppose these brainiacs can find a connection between a rusting ballast tank and a civilian nuclear power plant, but it's almost like saying "My MG has a rust hole, so let's not waste money building any more Rolls-Royce's."
