Nuclear u-turn?

Islington South’s Labour MP Emily Thornberry was on the radio tonight expressing some scepticism about nuclear power – to my surprise.

Why? Well, this time last year – on 17 January 2007 – Lib Dem MPs tabled a motion, “This House opposes the construction of a new generation of civil nuclear power plants.” Ms Thornberry voted against it.

If she has now come round to agreeing with the Liberal Democrat position, that’s welcome. But as we know from Post Office closures, what Emily says when it suits her, and how she actually votes, are two very different things.
