Greenpeace activists entered a conference where Tony Blair was about to deliver a speech about the positive qualities of nuclear power and told the attendees that nuclear power is very dangerous. Blair champions the construction of new nuclear power plants.
Blair’s presence at the conference was kept secret, but rumors swirled that he would be present.
From the article:
“After a 40-minute stand-off – during which the protesters dropped yellow “nuclear fall-out” confetti on the delegates and Mr Blair went off and had a cup of tea – the CBI’s director general, Sir Digby Jones, emerged, somewhat embarrassed, to say that the speech would go ahead in another room.”
