No place for nuclear enthusiasts in South Australia’s Liberal Party
Valdis Dūnis , Nuclear Fuel Cycle Watch South Australia, 24 Feb 17
No room for nuclear spruikers in the Liberal party anymore, as two such people are fully out of the party now:
‘Former Senator Sean Edwards will not seek state preselection, citing policy differences with Steven Marshall’s partyroom. Edwards, a pro-nuclear advocate who had toyed with the prospect of entering parliament in either Frome or Heysen, today confirmed: “I will not be seeking preselection for the 2018 state election. My long-held position in obtaining cheap baseload energy with zero carbon emissions – desperately required for SA – is likely to put me at odds with the parliamentary team’s newly-stated views on gas exploration and nuclear, and providing a contest of ideas in this space,” he told InDaily.’
