I hope 'Al Qaeda' lacks a maritime capacity

Because our snus-loving friends on the other side of the North Sea (and the Skaggerak) are sending us a rather sizeable consignment of weapons grade plutonium next month.

Turns out the Swedes (for it is they), had a weapons programme in the 50s and 60s, which they gave up circa 1970. Had they gone all the way, they would have beaten India, Israel etc to be the sixth nuclear armed state. Anyway, it looks as though the Swedes are not too worried about the Norwegians, Estonians et al and have decided to send it to Sellafield, as "Andreas Carlgren, Sweden's environment minister, said that the government had no choice but to export the waste, as Sweden has no facilities for processing it at home".

Greenpeace are none too happy about this development, as they have misgivings about Windscale Sellafield, which I suppose shows a lack of parochiality in its approach.
