South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill’s deception about the Nuclear Citizens’ Jury

Weatherill nuclear dream

The Citizens’ Jury has delivered exactly what Jay Weatherill wanted- a summary of the Royal a-cat-CANCommission recommendations, with enough uncertainty to justify the nuclear lobby’s next step.

(I’m correcting a previous version of this post, here) The South Australian government already rushed through legislation that overturned  South Australia’s legislation against spending money on nuclear industry development, (making this retrospective of course – to cover the $millions already spent)

The next step is to overturn the whole Act, or at least those parts of it which prohibit importing a nd storing foreign wastes.

Weatherill is quoted in THE AUSTRALIAN today as saying ”

“they (the Citizens’ Jury) are asking us to also change the legislation to undertake that work”.

That is a lie. The jury was merely repeating what the Nuclear Royal Commission said. The jury kept to their brief – no decisions or recommendations – just regurgitate what the Commission said.
