Tory manifesto signals the end of new nuclear power

After years of pro-nuclear bombast from the Conservative Party, the 2017 Tory manifesto hasn’t got a single word to say about nuclear power, writes Oliver Tickell. Instead it announces a renewed focus on cutting energy costs, and a big boost for increasingly low-cost wind power; while both Labour and Libdems offer only weak, highly qualified support for new nuclear build. And so the British ‘nuclear renaissance’ reaches its timely end.
