Gordon Is A Moron

In possibly his most stunning piece of hapless mismanagement yet, Gordon Brown has agreed to sell British Energy to the French.

Éléctricité de France has agreed to buy British Energy for £12.5 billion, the companies confirmed Wednesday, in a deal that gives the French company a dominant role in the British nuclear power industry.

The French utility EDF will gain control of eight British nuclear plant sites with potential for building new reactors.

EDF said it was also in discussion for Centrica, the owner of British Gas, to take a 25 percent stake in that as well.

What's next Gordon? Why not sell them the Isle of Wight and be done with it?
