American hailed as “Japan’s nuclear saviour”: Fukushima workers hope reactors can be made safe and start up again

Title: Lady Barbara Judge: Japan’s smart nuclear weapon
Source: The Independent
Author: Margareta Pagano
Date: Sunday 17 February 2013

Lady Barbara Judge is just back from inspecting the nuclear plants at Fukushima in Japan, the ones closed down after the devastating earthquake and tsunami two years ago. She visited the control rooms at Daiichi – plant one – where three of the reactors went into meltdown and met many of the men who risked their lives by working during the emergency to cool the over-heated reactors and eventually shut them down.

It’s not what she expected but the mood there was ” fantastic”. “What was astonishing was the optimism and hope shown by the workers that these plants can be made safe, and that they can start operating again,” she says. But this was in stark contrast to the mood of the Japanese public, still in a state of shock and strongly opposed to the restoration of the nuclear programme.

Already being hailed as Japan’s nuclear saviour, Lady Judge was in Fukushima with the bosses of the plants’ owner, Tokyo Electric Power Company […]

[…] with scientists such as Professor James Lovelock and critics such as the environmental activist George Monbiot coming on side, she is now even more confident [nuclear has a future as part of any energy mix …]

[She] had long, blonde and wavy hair – Farah Fawcett style – and her crochet dresses were short. “They came to about here, about as short as this jacket,” she whispers. “It was the Sixties. I was a bit of a leftie, you know, demonstrating against Vietnam, that sort of thing.”

[…] at weekends she lets her hair down and wears jeans; with a blue blazer, of course.

In addition to discussing clothing choices, the article notes, “There’s one group of people who stay stubbornly anti-nuclear – women, especially the more educated ones. Wherever you are in the world, she says, all the focus groups show that it’s better-off women who don’t trust fission.”

  • This a carefully crafted load of propaganda….

    • weeman

      Tokyo Rose I have named her, just like the second world war the propaganda machine is on full spin cycle and we all know the false lies that they promote and brainwashing of populace.

      • hogy

        This is no surprise–the nuke industry is alive and well in UK–no doubt someone from TEPCO asked UK to send someone to support TEPCO.
        I doubt if her visit will change ANYTHING. The facts are still coming out about widespread contamination in Japan, and rad-water is still exiting from the Daiichi site into the Pacific Ocean. Unit 4 is still dangerous…..on and on.

        • guezilla

          Just to say that given Japanese culture I very strongly doubt her coming on board was on TEPCO's initiative. My guess is international atomic interests forced her upon them, and TEPCO considers her a liability and public relations nightmare.

          In fact one could only hope this (ridiculing nuclear) is the effect it ends up having in Japan, but unfortunately it's rather clear she's there for the benefit of the international audience. (British, probably, given the focus on "Lady Judge")

          I'd be interested to know how many, if any Japanese even know she's on board. I could not find her mentioned on any of the materials on the "Nuclear Reform Monitoring Committee" materials I found. Thenagain they've also sent her on trade delegations to Arab cultures. Maybe they were hoping to trade her for a camel?

          • Anthony Anthony

            You are smart AND hilarious!!! For a camel!!! Anyways, I hear your take on it but want to suggest not to underestimate how Japanese in their way really look up to the west and white people. Generally speaking. Thats not to say they also have prejudices as well with other races like everyone does but I think in this context where the populace is revolting so strongly, white authority carries alot of potential power in moving the people back to accepting nuclear there. She is even called lady and her last name is Judge. She is their big gun to pull the people back in line, just watch. I think she is very Gaga and they LOVE HER.

  • hbjon hbjon

    The job of cleanup is still a suicide mission and there is nothing to control in that so called "control room". Doubt there is anyone within 30 miles north and east of Daiichi. Your offered great pay to travel to Japan and help out huh? I'm sure they'll refer to you as a "Key person". Who collects on the life insurance policy Mrs. Judge?

  • Sickputer

    Her track record has not always been so cheery:

    April 23, 2010

    "WASHINGTON—Massey Energy Co., owner of a coal mine where 29 workers were killed this month, on Monday said that the board member responsible for governance had resigned because of the demands of "other ongoing business activities."

    Lady Barbara Thomas Judge's resignation, effective immediately, comes amid growing criticism of the management of the Richmond, Virginia, company. For months, shareholders had complained that Lady Judge was unable to devote enough time to the job because she served on too many corporate boards. The complaints about Massey's corporate governance intensified after a coal-mine explosion two weeks ago that was the deadliest in 40 years."

    Another article in 2007:

    "But questions remain. Why does Lady Judge need so many jobs? How did she land her role at the UK Atomic Energy Authority, when she had no relevant experience? Is it relevant that a female friend was on the selection panel?
    Lady Judge bristles. She points out that, as a lawyer, it is her job to master a subject about which she is initially ignorant. To prepare for her role at the Atomic Energy Authority, she even studied her son's physics books. She also has a strategic business role, which she is well equipped to carry out.'

        Does she care about anyone's children? She has been brought in to ensure the death of every living child in Japan, and all the rest.

        This is the face of pure evil. If you ever meet anyone with this look in their eyes, walk away. No good will come of it. I have personal experience, and you don't want to get involved.

          From that article:"Given how much cancer already exists in the world, it would be very difficult to prove that anyone's cancer was caused by the incident at Fukushima Daiichi. World Health Organization estimates that 7.8 million people died worldwide in 2008, so 130 out of that number is quite small, she added."

          Translation: You can't prove it. 130 doesn't seem like we are getting what we paid for. Only a fraction of a percent increase, we can do better going forward.

          Real world: A girl dies who would have discovered unimaginable things in the future. Children have to stop school to care for sick parents. Husbands loose wives. Mothers loose daughters and sons. Food doesn't taste as good. People are afraid to go out in the rain.

        16P: "How did she get the nucleocrat leadership job if uneducated"

        SP: The biographers and journalists attribute her amazing track record to her networking ability. She is the embodiment of a career professional who knows no limits in her pursuit of fame, fortune, and time in the spotlight.

        She is American with dual British citizenship and married into a nobility title with her third husband in Britain. She is highly educated and has worked as a lawyer, banker, law review editor, youngest member of the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) and lobbyist.

        In 1989 she got nailed for involvement in the Charles Keating savings and loan scandal. But she escaped relatively unscathed.

        As a Big Brother counterpart she would be Big Mother. If she was in a female TV series similar to Mad Men it would be named Mad Women.

        She is quite possibly the shrewdest and most vicious nucleocrat in the Big Four of her, fellow Brit and suspiciously-late-in-life nuclear shill and activist propaganda writer George Monbiot, fellow Brit and journalist Michael Hanlon and her fellow American Lady-Judge-In-Training-Bra Ann Coulter.

        Check out this hilarious lampoon of the brainless Coulter:

        These nucleocrats with lavish parties, and ignorant nucleocrat distortions of the truth will never engage in a debate with someone knowledgeable and unflappable like Arnie. They will not escape the verdict of history.

    • Dr. Anne Lee Tomlinson Maziar anne

      She's not an American. She's head of UK's Pension Protection Fund.

      Also from this article:

      "Lady Judge, 63 years old, was chairman of the board's governance and nominating committee and also served on the finance, safety, environmental and public policy committees. Lady Judge was named to chair the governance committee after she saw about 59% of votes cast withheld for her reelection, according to proxy advisory firm RiskMetrics Group Inc. It was the highest level of opposition for any director up for re-election at a company in the Standard & Poor's 500 Index in 2009.

      "In March, CtW Investment Group called on the board to 'immediately request Lady Judge's resignation as director.' CtW said that 'reseating Lady Judge may be the Massey board's most fundamental corporate governance failure.'…"

    • We Not They Finally

      Massey Energy is callous criminals. The banks she's worked for are callous criminals. TEPCO is callous criminals. Take away her perfectly combed hair and what do you have? But to throw this one in the face of people already being poisoned to death, is so low, it's sunk right down to the corium in the melted nuclear reactors.

    • Oh Sickputer, you have only scratched the surface…she is a whore for the banksters and when you see the tangled web of lies, deceit, and destruction she has left in her champagne-guzzling dinner-part wake you will shudder.

      Remember Charles Keating? She was knee-deep in the largest banking scandal in history…she paid off someone to be kept out of the class-action filed by the people who lost money from the savings and loan scandal

      Remember the Rupport Murdock (Sun)scandal, where celebrities had phones tapped and several went to jail? She was part of that too

      She was given the title "The honorable" when she was elected to the board of the SEC, a title which she has kept, which even SEC execs say is uncustomary and "highly unusual"

      Her only nuclear study comes from reading her son's physics books from school, lol

      And that's only the beginning…I am putting together a dossier on her shady career which will be a real eye-opener

      Trust me, she is NO LADY.

      Stay tuned. RadChick 😉

    Majia, you are much too kind. This isn't carefully crafted, but rather desperate and pathetic.
    Fukushima is the death nail of nuclear energy and they know it. So they roll out the b-team.
    The timing of this crap coincides nicely with the first of thousands of cancers that are directly caused this death machine.

    Start up 3 x-vessel core reactors? Are you joking? It takes BILLIONS of $$ to renovate one that is in good shape! Fuku off Lady Judge. That is the stupidest thing I've heard a shill, or anyone else for that matter, say. Idiot.

    • It might be "carefully crafted" if the nukers can't hire good help these days. I suppose finding literate but unethical people to work writing nukepower-friendly articles is difficult–perhaps the banks have hired them all.

      It is most certainly propaganda–crochet dresses, hairstyles, and all. I was hoping it was from _The_Onion_ but no such luck.

      • Sickputer

        Yes, this is a different level of propaganda, but ultimately the nucleocrats can only stall and hope Fukushima Daiichi gets magically contained. Chernobyl was pretty much contained (at least for continued longe range fallout) after 6 months except for some local fallout that continues to this day. The big nuke builders and the military generals anxious for their continued supply of nuclear weaponry are praying Fukushima will just fade into history so they can get back to their death dealing ways.

        But things are still bleak in Japan. The news never gets any better. More people in central Japan are getting sick and the connection to nuclear fallout is impossible to hide in the Internet media. The MSM even feels obliged at times to buck the former code of silence the nucleocrats held for decades.

        Hang on for a bumpy ride…lots more surprises lurking in the future from Japan. The key to global knowledge will be the health of Tokyo citizens. When radiation illnesses escalate to epidemic proportions then people like Lady Judge will be revealed to the world as the biggest genocidal liars since Stalin and Hitler.

        • We Not They Finally

          Newsflash: You're obviously on the right side, but underinformed. Chernobyl was not all that "contained." See Helen Caldicott about contaminated food in Europe to this day. Me, I was living in New York at the time. And from childhood, I had seen caterpillars on the sidewalks, and then butterflies in the air. After Chernobyl, no more. Not ever. By the way, look into the Santa Susana Labs just outside of L.A. — a 1959 accident 240 times worse than Three Mile Island, concealed from the public, and heavily contaminated to this day. But Fukushima? The worst! Three total meltdowns (Michio Kaku says never before) and NO WAY to stop, contain, or fix anything. But tragically, this one cannot just "fade into history." The strains on the health systems world-wide may well become too obvious and too great. I'd like to say "too gloomy a prediction" — but shy of a miracle, just read and that is what you very well might see.

          • Sickputer

            WNTF: ….underinformed….

            SP: ;-). No need to quibble over words, but I assure you that my use of the words "continued long range fallout" means my opinion that little "fresh" deposits straight from Chernobyl Unit 4 have added to the deposits worldwide. YMMV

            The site has been nearly contained, but of course the massive fallout deposits already ex-vessel ( or actually ex-site since there wasn't much of a vessel) move about at will from forest fires, floods, snow, etc.

            The scientists are even astounded that the Chernobyl world-wide cesium levels have NOT dropped a half-life in the near 30 year time frame as expected. So much for their original projections.

            2009 article on this cesium puzzle:


            SP: The fact they have discovered strontium levels did degrade as expected tells me no new massive influx of fallout is coming from Unit 4 at Chernobyl. I think the cesium is migrating from other hot spots through disruption of soil and timberland. Some disruptions are manmade (farming, excavation, dredging, etc. Some are environmental like wildfires, blizzards, jetstream movements, and drought.

            Fukushima Daiichi does not have any level of containment that prevents massive fresh emissions every second of the day. There is no off switch at Fukushima. 710 days and counting for this crisis and they have no hope of solving the constant new air and ocean discharges.

    Something to give your kids and grandkids some hope beyond doom and life is no longer worth living.

    Use your brains … such a concept. Use your brains … inspire the next gens with some hope and activism …

    Or doom them to destruction and apathy after we are gone.

        Hi WSP … I believe I did offer a suggestion; instead of just bitching here inspire the next gens with some hope and activism.

        To think that your writing here on this relatively obscure alt net site without any follow up to the folks who might actually be able to listen and change something is delusional.

        It doesn't matter what great nuggets of insight y'all come up with … if they don't go beyond this site actively it is a circle jerk.

        And since most of the brainiacs here are so long in the tooth that they can sit almost 24 7 here … but not reach out to a greater audience and offer info how to connect to those young minds …

        And inspire them to do something more …

        Is also delusional that this site has done anything to reach those kids.

        How many young folks protested today re climate change in DC?

        Because of ENE? Hardly.

        If you are active and have a cause … post it.

        Otherwise this is just a bitch session here and we who already have one foot in the grave are already doomed and congratulating ourselves for our great wisdom in knowing so now but whored ourselves for 30 40 years by not actively stopping it while some amassed their retirement security wo risking it to anti anything but that …

        so screw inspiring the next gen that there is any hope.

    I guess she can attach names and faces to the Fukushima workers who "hope the reactors can be made safe and start up again"? No, of course not. They cannot even fill 90% of the job offerings there. Low wages, contaminated food, no medical follow-up, and say, just put this lead plate over your dosimeter and you'll be fine. But the appalling cynicism of using a beautifully-manicured woman to shovel this crap in the face of people already being poisoned to death? I'm embarrassed that people like that even claim to be of the same species as us.

            There is a connection between Montagu and the Rothschilds. Such a surprise (sarcasm).

            Samuel Montagu

            Brief History of Samuel Montagu as London Bullion Market Member

            Samuel Montagu & Co.
            1853 – founded by Samuel Montagu and Ellis Franklin in Leadenhall Street.
            Moved to 21 Cornhill soon after.
            Early 1860s – moved to 114 Old Broad Street.
            Only firm combining banking and bullion broking.
            1963 – Montagu Trust was formed as a holding company whose subsidiaries were Samuel Montagu & Co., Guyzeller Zurmont Bank and 2 insurance companies E W Payne and Bland Welch
            1967 – Montagu Trust becomes a subsidiary of Midland Bank, remaining relatively independent until 1985.
            1992/3 – Hongkong & Shanghai Banking Corporation take over Midland and Montagu Trust becomes part of HSBC Investment Banking Group.

            Rothschild Gold Bars
            As you can see from our photograph, gold bars exist with both Rothschild and Samuel Montagu stamps. It is likely that one of the companies made bars fro the other under contract.

            London gold fix prices can be found on the site of the LBMA, the London Bullion Market Association.

              “I looked at the initial bids to run the new nuclear energy program:
              “UK EPR submitted by Areva & EDF; Westinghouse's AP1000; GE-Hitachi Nuclear Energy's ESBWR; AECL's ACR-1000

              governments, the Rothschilds will control their own as a monopoly and their secret private space-based delivery system as well. Say hello to your new god.
              “…Lilienthal, for a time, headed that part of the Military Industrial Complex that kept the US in atomic weapons, in an arms race bankrolled with borrowings from Lazard Freres and other Rothschild-allied investment banks.

              “As I was saying, the Obama Plan is simply the latest attempt at implementing a version of the Baruch Plan for a monopoly of atomic power by international power unanswerable to any nation. …”

              Rothschild Bank International
              Leading the Push for "New Nuclear"
              In June 2005, the newspaper, Sunday Business, reported how "N.M. Rothschild, the London merchant bank, is leading an initiative to finance, build and manage Britain's next generation of nuclear power stations. It plans to create a jointly-owned nuclear power company, provisionally named New Nuclear, that could raise funds and manage the nuclear-build programme.
              “The paper reported how ‘The move highlights Rothschild's long-held ambitions to dominate the next phase of nuclear power development. The company was previously adviser to private nuclear generator British Energy for what would have been the Sizewell C power station. Rothschild in 1994 led attempts to raise 3.5bn (E5.3bn, $ 6.4bn) in funding for the plant, which was never built.
              “’The Business has learned that Rothschild has drawn up the plan on behalf of its client, state nuclear group BNFL, which is looking at ways in which a UK nuclear revival could be funded by the private sector’.
              “A source at one of the UK power utilities told the newspaper: "Rothschild's are very keen to get back into nuclear."[4]…”

    This is just so unbelievable that those reactors can be made safe and start up again, and that someone would even think that would be possible.

      Where is at least the photoshopped photo of her "visiting" the nuclear plants? There is no way she is getting one inch closer to them. I'm just livid that callous mass murderers like this still get dignified as "humans." Who cares about their money? Just don't call these people as being from the same species as you or me.

    • We Not They Finally

      She DOESN'T think that it's possible to re-start those plants.And no, she did not "visit" them. The nuclear industry worldwide is what they are protecting. On the other hand, the corrupt evil maniac just re-installed as Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe, MAY want to "restart" the reactors, even though he has to also know that that is not possible. I hate to say it, and I never thought I would, but what if Japan outright sunk? THEN would there be any chance of saving the rest of the world from ongoing deadly irreversible contamination? Or would it just keep spewing into the oceans and the air forever? Is this just a rhetorical question by this point?

    When it is realized finally that Japan is irreparably damaged, the US reputation will be even more damaged than it is now. Everyone there will be asking what about this promise from America? Surely she is deluded or just relishes the acting role. Maybe she thinks that she can fool all the people some of the time, or some of the people all the time, but anyway, oh what fun!

    NewsFlash! Lady Judge to be sent back in time to the deck of the Titanic! Her mission — to hand out flyers stating in no uncertain terms that all is well. There is no panic. Like in the movie, The Matrix, "There is no spoon."

    Convening all passengers in the boardroom, the Lady solicits the most able passengers to work out the details for towing the sinking vessel into port, where she will be refitted with all the latest electronic devices, such as 6,000,000 inch flatscreen 3D HDTV.

    One passenger screams, "But what about the people jumping off the ass end of the vessel, which by the way is pointing at the North Star?" The Lady gives a coy look to the passenger, and replies, "Next question! — and please remember, posters are not to launch personal attacks."
