After the Japan disaster, Italy has become a very confusing place on the issue of whether or not to stick nuclear power plants all over the Living Museum.
Initial official reaction after disaster in Japan:
- We’re forging ahead with Italy’s nuclear plans regardless.
Subsequent official reaction:
- Maybe we’ll think about forging ahead with popping nuclear power plants all over Italy before we do.
Following official reaction:
- We’re not going to build nuclear plants in Italy.
The next official reaction:
- We’re only thinking about not starting to build nuclear power plants in Italy for a year or so.
Further official reaction:
- We’re going to build nuclear power plants in Italy regardless.
Latest official reaction:
- Berlusconi: We only said we were not going to build nuclear power plants in Italy to avoid the planned referendum on the issue.
Future official reaction:
Confusing, isn’t it?
Will Italy go nuclear? Who knows, but one hopes it does not – at least until the age-old organised crime problem has been wiped out – like some time in the next millennium or so.
