Considering the criteria mentioned here: https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/nuclear-power-too-costly-too-163002700.html - it would seem that speed is of the essence for RR, to steal a march on the competition, to demonstrate proof of concept and to be a practical mitigation to rising atmospheric carbon, aside from the utility of regulating base loads relying on solar and wind generation. We can only hope the UK government considers this requirement and facilitates making SMRs demonstrably viable as quickly as possible. As a nation, we have a woeful record of dragging our heels (Covid vaccines excepted).
@Charlesrixon "( Bo/ Shell should throw in free Breakfast and Sandwich/ Coffee vouchers at their Petrol stations for loyal shareholders too :) )"
Indeed, there seems to be a dearth of companies who provide 'extras' for their loyal shareholders. I used to like the vouchers dished-out by Grand Metropolitan, back in the day. Not so much as a 'sniff of the barmaid's apron' from Diageo..
However, I never fill-up at BP - way too expensive for SUL. Once in a long while I treat my AMG to a tankful of Shell V-Power for the benefit of the PEA additive, otherwise it's Tesco Momentum or Sains Super... ;)

RE: Brent back to $75. How much longer can the market21 Sep 2021 22:33
My Dad's been in a care home for 112 weeks @ £1600/week. The local authority (LB Bexley) is short of care places for those who have less than £23k in assets, so they procure rooms in his care home at a 'special' rate. So not only has he spent £180,000 (and counting) on his own care, but he's generously subsidizing those with fewer assets. He turned 90 this year, so was working and paying taxes from the 1950s through decades of austerity and the aforementioned Labour tax grabs of the 1970s. Unless they are crooks,'the rich old sods' continue to pay their way and contribute to society until the day they die.
