Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
European Tribune - Merkel's nuclear exit

I think further: incidentally, 2021 is an election year - so a right-wing government returning in 2017 or 2021 after a defeat in 2013 would have the opportunity to execute another phaseout of the phaseout once Fukushima recedes from public memory.

The 1980 swedish referendum on nuclear power ended with a majority for gradual nuclear exit and a minority for immidiate nuclear exit. The ýear 2010 was generally understood as the final year for the gradual exit. Well, that did not happen.

So I think the plan is to take offline the most dangerous plants and then wait until the mood changes.
