23 May – Dr Andrew Allison assesses the FINAL RECOMMENDATIONS of South Australia’s Nuclear Fuel Chain Royal Commission
22 May This page is taking over from the Royal Commission page. You would think that South Australia’s Nuclear Royal Commission was over. But No. The South Australian government is now using the Citizens’ Juries to continue the work of the RC.
The first Citizens’ Jury is in no way a jury.
It seems to have been given the job of further “educating” the public on the recommendations of the RC.
.A Citizens’ Jury should be tasked with making a judgement about something. It should not be a promotional exercise.
The jury is asked to produce an independent guide to help every South Australian understand the recommendations raised by the Royal Commission’s report.
