Michele Madigan sets former Minister Christopher Pyne straight on nuclear waste dump plan

Funny how after all this time – since 1998 as he acknowledges, former Minister Christopher Pyne (Advertiser 7th December) has not yet caught up with the fact that the federal nuclear waste dump is not just’ a low-level nuclear waste facility.’ Over 90% of the waste measured in radioactivity in fact is intermediate level waste which will remain radioactive for an unimaginable10,000 years. I’d say that will probably be for every generation of South Australians to come.

And mentioning the former Senator Nick Minchin as Mr Pyne does, would that be the same Senator Minchin who in July 2004 made a ‘rolled gold’ promise, that ‘never again’ would the federal Coalition  government seek to impose a federal nuclear waste dump on South Australia?
Senator Minchin’s announcement made banner headlines on the Advertiser front page that day. I still look at it occasionally.
