Straight from the last paragraph in the article:
We took another step towards stopping the madness of further nuclear development, at a time when the rest of Europe are getting 60 per cent of their energy from renewables.

Straight from the European Energy Commission website:
The EU aims to get 20% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020. Renewables include wind, solar, hydro-electric and tidal power as well as geothermal energy and biomass. More renewable energy will enable the EU to cut greenhouse emissions and make it less dependent on imported energy. And boosting the renewables industry will encourage technological innovation and employment in Europe.
So Ray Davies if the EU energy commission is aiming for 20% renewables by 2020 how can we be at 60% now. Stick to singing with the kinks because you don't know crap about anything else!

There are no cancer clusters anywhere associated with operating nuclear power plants. The alleged British association was shown to be false long ago. If there were such associations with radiation exposure, then any negative health effects would have shown up long ago in Colorado, Wyoming, Kerala or Ramsur. The radiation dose to the public (and most workers) is smaller than the VARIATION in natural background radiation dose. Medicial radiaton exposure is one of the major sources of radiation dose to the human population. In the US, that dose has tripled over the last few years, while the cancer death rate has dropped.
