Chernobyl


Anniversaries are coming thick and fast in April and this Sunday, tomorrow, marks the 23rd for the Chernobyl Nuclear accident.

Although the web has plenty of stories about how the immediate area is still a contamination cancer, not much surfaces about ongoing problems elsewhere.

The only reference I could find about the U.K, for example, dated from 2003 when 40 farms were still being monitored.

Clearly forgetfulness has a limited half-life but considering the lies that were officially disseminated at the time (the French government claimed the clouds had stopped at the frontier), why should we trust this absence of news.

I remember leaving the house where I lived in London that day and stopping as a sudden heavy rain fell. Safe to walk through this?

Trust your instincts.
