CHINA has agreed to build nuclear power stations in Britain that can be detonated from Beijing.
The first station, at Hinkley Point in Somerset, will be followed by a chain of other power plants built at sites of strategic importance, military bases and in major population centres.
President Xi Jinping said: “This is so much more cost-effective than maintaining ICBMs and warheads, and really reduces on delivery times.
“We have the option of simply cutting off power to Britain for minor infractions, and for more serious displeasure I set off a chain of 30-megaton explosions reducing the UK to ash without even leaving my office.
“Best of all, the problem of how to deal with nuclear waste is a lot less thorny when it is 5,000 miles away.”
The prime minister has reassured the public that the power stations will be operated and run by the French, who would never let anything happen to Britain.
