Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ignoring the confirmation bias and the Atlanticist whining usually behind the Libya thing, it's interesting how this is spun even in a center-left paper in pro-nuclear France. Germany isn't simply standing accused of going it alone in the nuclear phaseout, but of offering an example to follow to Switzerland (where a much slower phaseout by 2034 was proposed by the government) and Italy (where a referendum is upcoming on 12-13 June, which the opposition treats as another opportunity to defeat Berlusconi, who first proposed a nuclear revival) – and even France's reluctance to go ahead with a second EPR (no, cost overruns have nothing to do with it). The dependence on Russia thing also comes up, renewables don't.
