Hinkley: Chinese-funded “unproven technology”
Telegraph, Friday 16th September 2016
Theresa May met Chinese president Xi Jinping at the G20 conference for bilateral talks at which Hinkley Point was discussed. Days later, on September 15, the government has given the green light to the controversial scheme following a “new agreement” with EDF. Hinkley Point C has been the subject of fierce controversy in the UK because of its cost and its unproven technology, but cancellation of the project would have led to a diplomatic rift with China and France.
