want to come clean on this one," BNFL chief executive, Norman Askew,
said at a press conference last night. "We have been remiss in our
handling of our dangerous nuclear rubbish. Things would be a whole lot

when contacted by The Evil Gerald over a shortage of the iodine
tablets meant to protect Irish citizens in the event of a nucelar accident
at Sellafield, a spokes man for the Department of Energy said "Aha
yeah! The tablets thing! I can't believe you went for that. We really
didn't see that one coming. You'll have to excuse me for a minute while
I pick myself up off the floor". He later joked that "We're
all screwed anyway", before inquiring what we were doing "after".
