Returning home from a very damp Paris to an equally damp London to read all about Hinkley: what a ridiculous state of affairs. Is there anything to add?
I have seen a couple of half-hearted attempts to praise May for this craven decision. Nick Butler (*spits*) in the FT gives her a convoluted, obsequious and yet condescending grammar-school mark - “VG 8½ out of 10. A good start to the term. Keep it up”.
And an un-named Chinese official tells China Daily (hoho!): "May has managed a good deal – she has managed to satisfy her domestic critics, satisfy her own cautious nature, and keep the Chinese on side".
Well there's a thing.
Except here's one domestic critic who ain't satisfied. Obviously we are never going to see the full text of the contract & related agreements, but (as with Cameron's lame Brexit 'negotiation') with the right creative approach there was a lot that could have been done - but not in seven weeks of cloistered, introspective worrying.
She really is no sort of negotiator, is she? As well as being thick.
