Fukushima spin was Orwellian, Guardian by John Vidal, July 1, 2011:

[... T]he release of 80 emails showing that in the days after the Fukushima accident not one but two government departments were working with nuclear companies to spin one of the biggest industrial catastrophes of the last 50 years, even as people were dying and a vast area was being made uninhabitable, is shocking. [...]

What the emails shows is a weak government, captured by a powerful industry colluding to at least misinform and very probably lie to the public and the media. [...]

[T]o argue that the radiation was being released deliberately and was “all part of the safety systems to control and manage a situation” is Orwellian. [...]

    An ignorant government that relies for its information on companies it is planning to reward with contracts for billions of pounds smacks of corruption.

    These guys were not just cosy. They were naked, in bed and consenting. Their closeness now raises questions such as what influence could the industry have had on the chief nuclear inspector’s report on Fukushima, and whether speeches by David Cameron, Chris Huhne and other ministers were informed or even written by the industry. Can we ever trust government to tell us the truth on nuclear power, or should we just accept that the industry and government are now as one.

      kx I do not mind your approach. However, once more of we mindless monkies submitting to worldwide neoliberalism (not liberal, just in case you are unfamiliar with the term–but fascism related to world corporativism/globalization), we will all come to see that “death by a thousand cuts” will take ever expanding forms AGAINST the current status quo despots. They think they can hold us down, by intentionally poisoning us, misinforming us, desensitizing we the people. This is a fallacy they will ultimately learn is worthless. The solutions to destroy the hierarchical exploitation and hoarder despots at the top are far more diverse and powerful than any aggregation of their divide-and-conquer strategies. We who resist world fascism have the universe and the ecosystem on our side, violent or non-violent means, and the right spirit to destroy the selfish billionaire scum and their military/covert prick retinue are only the beginnings of our, of course, victorious “weapons” against them.

      Sorry, just some bitter humor there. What really flames me is the quote, ‘Can we ever trust government to tell us the truth on nuclear power, or should we just accept that the industry and government are now as one.’.

      I see this could be the way it goes for so many governmental issues today. That people just become accustomed to the lies, and accept that these corrupt industries and gas-bag politicians work together to get whatever they want…and the sheeple do nothing.

      tony, the brits are only part of it. The system is worldwide and is class based. Globalization (corporativism/neoliberalism)is a class warfare/exploitation structure (violent in every way, over and covert) against most working class people. Working class people are all those, working or not, who are NOT billionaires and are NOT in the ruling or decision making classes. Wealthier nations of Western Europe are part and parcel, and always have been, of L’hyperpuissance des EE.UU. Colonialism has never gone away. The U.S. is, today, the martial cudgeon enforcing world European, with some friends in Asia at the top, ongoing parasitic economic terrorism against all world “workers”. Time to wake the hell up.

    more pearls of wisdom from uk based rothchild’s chatham house in house nuclear stooge.
    Malcolm Grimston
    quote : )

    Although visually spectacular, these explosions are not necessarily dangerous in terms of releasing radioactivity. The buildings are an external shell, with the task of sealing radioactive materials falling to a metal containment vessel constructed inside the concrete shell.

    “The explosion… wasn’t a terribly important event,” according to Malcolm Grimston from the Energy Policy and Management Group at Imperial College, London.

    “The building was designed to fall outwards” – preventing damage to the thick steel containment vessel inside.

    Up here in Canada must be same situation. Uranium mines and processing and selling Candu reactors equals no fuki news no testing air water milk no ban whatsoever of Japan food. Stephen Harper conservative just won an election by hand-picking journalists and refusing entry to his campaign speeches any one with history of political protest. People voted him in I think because they perceived him as being the best to deal with the economy. Over a thousand journalists covering the Will and Kate tour. Be interesting to see how long they spend on the west coast….

    Oh Bomb A spending 2-4 TRILLION dollars on foreign wars (thank-you for the bigger and better Vietnam) could have put solar panels on every American home and paid off everyones mortgage. And still ten years later nothing resolved in Iraq Afganistan but thinking of invading Pakistan and now invading Libya.

    Unfortunately, we the people have little say of what happens in this country. They keep us to pay taxes. We are the collateral of their loans. :(

    I started wondering why WE THE PEOPLE had no voice anymore. I started investigating past US history, what I found shocked, hurt, and eventually made me mad after the empty feeling in my heart with love for this country stopped aching.

    If you are bored some day, which of late has been inpossible, in fact the reverse is happening, google ” is the US a colony of the Crown ( or use Queen )”
    What you find out will completely dismantle everything we have been taught all our lives. We don’t even really own the homes/land we ‘own’ or have a mortgage on.
    Look at your Deed. It says you are a ‘TENENT’, and that you are.

    At first, all I found was the original treaty, very hard to read, with gobs of legalize in it, old English legalize to boot. Then finally I found 3 or 4 places that spelled it out in layman’s terms.

    Also, there is a legal reason that all our ID is spelled in capitals, from our Birth Certificate to any other govt./civilian ID we have, even true with credit cards.

    When there are alot of sensational stories going at one time, I always look at what the govt/military/banksters are up to. They are masters of “bait and switch” aka smkoke and mirrors.

    We have been duped ! Our parents were duped, our grandparents were duped and on and on.
    The govt. is based in the District of Columbia for a legal treaty reason with the Queen/Crown. Each time we have gone broke as a country, 3 times so far, and we are nearing #4, the loans/treaties to keep us going, came with stipulations.
    The govt. still pays the Queen $$ and the REAL REASON she was here recently, is that the US has defaulted on those payments. We are into the Queen for over 7 BN. so far, and they aren’t in good financial straits either. The Vatican Bank needs their payments from the UK which they bailed out a couple of centuries ago.

    War is very expensive. To date, the cost of the Iraq War alone, has cost 784 BN.
    Cost of current and recent, comes to a whopping 7.3 TRILLION.
    We have killed 1.5 million Iraqi people alone.
    The US , this year alone has sold 4 BN in arms. The missle heads being shot off all over, from Pakistan to Yemen, so far, have depleted uranium in them. This is a form of genocide.

    The US GOVT. is indeed a Corporation within itself.. hidden neatly. They do not answer to us.
    It does not surprise me that the UK did this. I’m not surprised anymore what we do.. I’m just pissed. AND, I see no way out.

    A peaceful revolution, and a complete breakdown of the entire structure is the only way. How can people do that? We have to have food, we have to pay our bills, some of us are old and disabled,younger ones have children, the list goes on and on.

    Personally, my husband and I have decided to stock up on food, buy more ammunition for our guns ( which I never owned my whole life untill recently) and get a passport. To where, I haven’t the slightest idea yet.

    Sorry for the length of this..and not even on this subject, but I see people really upset , like tony wilson and others and they need to be upset about the true reason he/they should be upset about. WE THE PEOPLE are nothing more than slaves/serfs and we have been given an illusion that we are soverign.

    Here is another nugget that should make you wonder…. the Chinese have been buying up land like crazy since the semi-crash-bailout. They have bought up a bunch of land in TX.. that makes since, gas & oil.. but why are they buying up a huge chunk in (either) Idaho or Utah ( can’t remember which right now, but Utah feels right.
    They are also buying up forclosed homes everywhere.. alot here in FLA.

    I was against NAFTA when it was ‘thought up’ and my step dad and I had our only political argument about it. Look where we are today and think about it. We are basically owned by China. I see that as a bad trade off, along with all the jobs being outsourced, and even a college degree doesn’t guarantee a young person a job in the US anymore. What they get is a HUGE college loan to pay off working at McDonalds or the Dollar Store.

    I worry about them, my husbands children and his grandchildren and all the other young families out there struggling to be a part of a system that does not exist.. a freedom that is an illusion.
    If we have freedom of speech, then why was Helen Thomas called by the President and asked to quite her job after she (heaven forbid) said something about the Zionists leaving Palestine? Ditto with Rick Sanchez.

    ENUF.. sorry for my rant, but people need to know this to make decisions. My health keeps me from standing on a corner and holding a sign to try to enlighten a bunch of people that stare blankly at a “reality?? show” and call that freedom. :(

    What? “Leaked emails?” The British government were the ones who put these reactors there. They built the first reactors in Japan then subcontracted American companies to build many others. Now all of a sudden they are “pointing fingers elsewhere”…well, that is typical of them now that I think of it. BP, illegal drilling, nuclear disasters, fake pandemics with WHO mandated vaccines, the British elite are behind every one. Starting to become very clear what is going on here.

    What shocked me even more than reading the Guardian article, are the comments “given by the readers.
    “Hardly a spin – nobody died at Fukushima”
    “The chances of the UK suffering a natural disaster on the scale that Japan did are very, very slim.”
    And so on…..it’s just disgusting.

      If they stop pouring water on it, the whole mess explodes and radiation levels on the whole site become way too high. In that case, Tepco evacuates, and leaves reactor 5&6 and the Daiini site to explode as well.
      Sounds like a better idea?

    Bunch of sworn in brothers. Willing to do all that theyre commanded to do, mostly unawares who is the commander of commanders… Oaths for every 0rder, thousands of em… Brits on the first row.
