Is Muhyiddin for real? With an unfolding nuclear nightmare sparking fear in Japan and nervousness across the region, the Deputy PM says that the BN-led administration is capable of handling the government’s nuclear energy ambitions.
You just have to throw your hands up in despair. Here’s another poll to express what you think. The previous poll on this blog on 28 May 2010 saw 85 per cent saying ‘No’ to the plants:
The Japanese with all their technological know-how and decades of experience with nuclear power plants are battling to prevent a huge catastrophe.
And here we are, with zero experience in nuclear energy, and Muhyiddin thinks the BN-government can handle its nuclear ambitions better than Japan can.
This could potentially become a major election issue.
Meanwhile, Japanese Cabinet Secretary Edano said this evening that the temperature of the remaining water in the spent fuel pools of Unit-5 and Unit-6 is rising. There is no cooling system functioning under the blackout, the anti-nuclear Green Action campaign group reports him as saying.
