PM touts new nuclear reactor as ‘triumph’.
“If a nation is unwilling to make a capital investment in projects of this nature, then it’s really not interested in our future”

Little Johnny Howler blowing his own trumpet yet again on the nuclear issue. He even deigns to compare the OPAL reactor with a full-blown power generation facility, yet anyone with half a brain knows it’s nothing of the kind. This new medical and industrial research facility is a light-water 20Mw reactor. Even the smallest reactors used in military naval vessels range around 150Mw and certainly aren’t attached to the myriad scientific instruments that the Sydney OPAL reactor has.
That vast difference isn’t likely to stop JWH from blowing the nuclear tuba though.
