"The Nuclear Provision is the best estimate of how much it will cost to clean up the UK’s 17 earliest nuclear sites over a programme lasting around 120 years."

So by my simple maths, there is a running cost by the NDA of about £3 billion a year and then its over some 120 years. In simple sums that's about £360 billion (todays rates).
Now the maths I'd have problems with is how to say that financially its a viable and sensible power source option?
