What's happened to Jack Pringle, president extraordinaire at Portland Place? While his presidency to date has been really rather successful - look at the major victory in the PFI debate, for example - he seems to have been brought to an abrupt halt in his one-man crusade to stop the seemingly inevitable rebirth of nuclear power. Pringle made it clear when he was campaigning 18 months ago that he was a passionate opponent of the energy source. So what happened when the perfect opportunity - the request for a consultation document on government energy policy - arises to have a good rant on the issue? A wall of silence.
Plenty of worthy advice on renewable power, but not even a mention that he hates nuclear power as much as Michael Foot.
Why so quiet, Jack? What we need is a bit of a diatribe.
