A little too much faith in academics that the governments is said to be ignoring, I think. But the current Foreign Minister would have to be the most unimpressive yet - and thatís putting it kindly.

Perhaps the author should offer himself to the Government as an advisor; although there is nothing in his brief bio to suggest that he would know any more than I do.

Yes, we need soft power. And with that soft power, velvet glove? we also need to carry a big stick!

For mine, that means we need some nuclear-powered nuclear-armed submarines! We also need MSR thorium deployed as SMR's, Given how vulnerable the current grid is, with (easiest target) transmission lines crisscrossing the nation.

We also need to be a nation that makes everything we need! And only doable if we embrace cheaper than coal energy, i.e., MSR thorium!

See the vids I've posted on FB. Or if not doable, post an email address, And I'll send videoed experts advising all the reasons and rebutting most of the (ignorant green) fearmongering BS around nuclear!
