Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That second line, it looks like someone is saying "This is costing the shareholders too much, its time  to just dump the plants out of the company and do a runner from the problem" and the staff onsite are horrified

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

That's the "split the company" scenario for TEPCO's bailout/nationalization
Either TEPCO will be bailed out with free money, or it will be split into a good firm and a bad firm with the government taking over the bad firm, or the government will take over the entirety of TEPCO.

So, in what may be my last act of "advising", I'll advise you to cut the jargon. -- My old PhD advisor, to me, 26/2/11

The accident makes a case for a management structure where workers are more involved rather than anonymous investors. One of these do not risk any radiation exposure. The workers are the party most concerned with the safety.
