I see no point in discussing hypotheticals and was not doing so.

That is the point. Most peeps I know who employ an accountant do so for
the sole purpose of legally minimising their taxable income. If their
accountant doesn't do their job, then the accountant ends up not being
their accountant.

Can you get a government subsidy for it?
AFAIK, every nuclear reactor is heavily subsidised and guaranteed by the
gummint.

Historically that's been true, in part because they kept designing new ones.

Settle on a design, and just repeat it over and over, and the cost comes
down to a point where electricity would be only moderately more
expensive than that produced by coal in Australia.

The cost of coal does not reflect what it costs to produce, it's what
the market will bear. Usually it's tied very closely to the price of
gas, as it's really joules that you're selling, not the material itself.

Particularly in the UK. I doubt 2 stations are the same and the early ones were
designed to produce fissile material for bombs, not optimised for power.

Exactly what France did. And they have about the cheapest electricity in Europe.

That is the bullshit yarn they have been telling, but it is never going
to happen in nuclear until thay are all produced in a factory and shipped
to site.  PV will reach that dream well before nuclear power ever comes
close.

I suggest you look at the French answer. It works.

" Over 75% of french electricity comes from nuclear power plants.[40] [41]
France is the largest net exporter of electricity in the world.[40]
Electricity exports generate over 3 billion euros of revenue a year for
France.[40] French electricity costs are among the lowest in Europe.[40] A
major factor in the low cost of electricity in France is the use of a single
reactor design, which allows for economies of scale.[41] French CO2 emissions
are among the lowest in the developed world, with 10 tons of CO2 equivalents
per person per year. Danish citizens emit an average of 14 tons of CO2
equivalents per person per year.[43] Even Iceland, with its abundance of
geothermal energy for heating, has higher per Capita emissions at 10.4 tons of
CO2 equivalents per Capita."

Absolutely no information on disposal.
Where?
How?
Who really pays for it? consumers or government(everyone?)

Nuclear Power has been talking this crap for decades and still doesn't
have an answer.

Dry waste storage has become increasingly popular.

On the contrary, it powers France and some of its neighbours.

Your answer proves my point. Everything has failed for thirty years and
they are still running around like headless chooks on what to do with it.

Is that so they can be made to share in the toxic waste storage problem?
You are avoiding the question.

AREVA is a commercial company.

Oh please, are you that stupid that you are oblivious to the subsidies
given to these companies. Or for that matter any company in Australia
that promises to create jobs; hint, land, rates, services,  electricity,
water, tax deductions, legalprotection, etc.

Who allegedly subsidises Nuclear Power plants when they are owned and
operated by the State, such as Chinas are.
You cant subsidise yourself.

Indeed there is .
Even more interesting is why they are happy to hand out $8K grants for
Solar PV , but only $1.5K for solar hot water heaters.
The Hot Water Heaters win hands down for energy saved versus cost, but
it seems that saving energy isnt as "warm and fuzzy" as making energy.

The solar water heater rebate makes it a marginal investment. The $8000
rebate for solar PV makes that a marginal investment. Apparently the
government likes creating situations in which people are placed into an
area of uncertainty as to where their best interests lie.
