Britain to become nuclear waste dumping ground?

Today the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management has officially launched it report findings into the best way to deal with nuclear waste. The short version being "dig a really deep hole in the middle fo noweher and chuck it in". Wonder how much money they spent to come up with that one?

This said, there is something slightly worrying about their findings. Apparently, "one third of the land in the UK could be geologically suitable for this purpose". Why make a specifc point of saying that I wonder? Could we be about to see the formation of a Public-Private Partnership company offering nuclear waste management services to the rest of the world, or am I just being a typical cynic?
