Lib Dem Sir Vince said the prime minister had worried about a "gung-ho" approach to Chinese investment in it.
. . .
Sources said China General Nuclear Power Corporation, which is contributing a third of the money, was "bemused" and "frustrated" by the hold-up.
BBC's Newsnight programme said it was security concerns over Chinese ownership of British nuclear power stations that were the primary reason why Mrs May had postponed the final decision on the deal.

As Gregor MacDonald, appearing on the Schwing-Schwing Show, pointed out, renewable energy has long since made nuclear power economically obsolete and now even makes coal-fired power stations uneconomical in comparison; the cheapest of carbon-based fuels.
Clearly, Hinckley Point is supposed to create tens of thousands of boondoggle jobs for France and Poodleville. That's why the goons & thugs are so in favour of it but now a second EDF executive has resigned in protest. It may never work as the technology is untested. If it does work it may produce so little energy before being closed down, that China will never get her money back. It could be decades before it ever gets started too.
Claims of security concerns, shows the bigotry, because EDF is a state-owned company, yet is accepted without question.
This could involve the business and energy secretary, Greg Clark, inviting the Japanese giant Hitachi to expand its existing programme of two new reactors in Britain.

In other words, Japan, which unlike China was on the opposing side in WW2, is trusted because it is a victim of the Great Satan's protection racket, whereas China is powerful enough to resist oppression.

If this is an attempt to play hard-ball when the bankrupt, insolvent, parasite poodle-state has no aces at all, it's a really dumbassed one. What a bunch of hapless amateurs! They presume China has already invested too much time, effort and money to go back. Instead, it's a good opportunity to walk away from a deal that no one else wanted.
