There’s no problem. Definitely not. Well perhaps there’s a bit of a hiccup. Yes, there’s a problem, but it’s under control. Yes, there’s a problem and it’s out of control. We’ve solved it, almost, at least we know what to do, and you should leave us in charge. Perhaps we don’t know quite what to do. Perhaps we haven’t been telling you as much as we could. Yes we have been leaking small amounts of of radioactivity, but it’s safe. Well perhaps we don’t know how much radioactivity, but it’s safe. Well perhaps we don’t know how safe. Well perhaps it could be a major major problem, but we still want to run nuclear reactors in Japan because we know what we’re doing, we’re open and trustworthy and we’re safe.
To be precise: safety last!
