Nuclear Power: Quote of the Day*
Well, M.Rivaz promised us a large-scale PR push this autumn, and here's the first installment.
"The likelihood of the UK nuclear project is greater and stronger and we're fully committed. It is robust economically and our determination is intact."
- Vincent de Rivaz, chief executive of EDF Energy
Slightly undermined by the Telegraph's choice of headline - EDF's reputation faces risk of meltdown - but there we go.
Obviously his PR people have helped him craft this ringing call to action, hence the 'likelihood' bit. But 'robust', mon vieux ? Don't we normally say 'needs just a leetle bit more public support, pour la certitude' - ?
