This morning, Brendan Nelson tabled legislation that would force the Northern Territory to become a nuclear waste dump. With the Government's numbers, this looks likely to pass. Now, there are a number of issues at stake here.
1: Do we need a nuclear waste dump, not having any reactors of our own? 2: Should we accept the waste of others?
3: Should the majority of Australians impose our wishes upon a Territory, which does not have the protection of a State parliament and is beholden to the Commonwealth?
