British Energy's nuclear power stations are seen as some of the best sites for new reactors in the UK. EDF, which is 85% owned by the French government, is the biggest nuclear power generator in the world.
I wonder if the French government would be keen on selling its nuclear power to a foreign government ? I wouldn't have thought so, somehow. But to Brown's bums, everything is up for sale. I doubt Cameron would be much different.
At least Charles II actually got the French to sign the Treaty of Dover.
