Nuclear test veterans win right to sue MoD

This is a good news story for a change. After over fifty years justice is finally served for thousands of veterans exposed to dangerous levels of radiation during UK nuclear weapons testing.

It took over fifty years for their grievances to be answered. That is plain ridiculous! Hopefully this case will set precedent for other cases in the future regarding government testing and addressing the harm caused to volunteers in the UK and elsewhere. Very good news!

I'd guess so many have died or are nearly dead,
they just have to stall out the court cases a bit
and it won't cost the government a cent.
