Abbott’s election advice to Morrison: it’s time for Australia to hit the nuclear switch

Abbott’s election advice to Morrison: it’s time for Australia to hit the nuclear switch. By Joe Kelly.

Tony Abbott has called on the Morrison government to sharpen the political contest with Labor ahead of the election by moving to lift the prohibition on nuclear power, as Bill Shorten leaves the door open to reviving the now “dead” national energy guarantee. …

Speaking on 2GB radio in Sydney yesterday, Mr Abbott said there was “absolutely no reason why, when it’s economic, we shouldn’t have nuclear power generation in ­Australia”.

About time. Australia should also have its own nuclear deterrent, or at least be in a position to develop one within a year.
