    Bye bye Iran. Better sooner than later.

    The first Iranian nuclear power station is inherently unsafe and will probably cause a “tragic disaster for humankind”, according to a document apparently written by an Iranian whistleblower.

    There is a “great likelihood” that the Bushehr reactor could generate the next nuclear catastrophe after Chernobyl or Fukushima, says the document, which has been passed to The Times by a reputable source and is attributed to a former member of the legal department of the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran.

    It claims that Bushehr, which began operating last month after 35 years of intermittent construction, was built by “second-class engineers” who bolted together Russian and German technologies from different eras; that it sits in one of the world’s most seismically active areas but could not withstand a major earthquake; and that it has “no serious training programme” for staff or a contingency plan for accidents.

    Aren't you "short" enough already?
