UK Conservatives lead anti-nuclear charge

The British Conservative Party believes that nuclear energy should be the "last resort" for electricity generation. UK Conservative Leader, David Cameron, told the local government association in Britain last week that energy generation should be decentralised to allow communities to become independent and increase the options for power generation. The UK Labour Party had announced that it would overrule local councils who ban nuclear power plants in their jurisdiction, but in the last week Prime Minister Tony Blair has said he has "changed his mind" on nuclear energy and that he now believes UK energy needs can be met without it.
