Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Some would dispute the cost of the LWR when risks of serious accident in actual use are taken into account.

The same people who have always looked at millenial time scale storage as just punting the problem onto future generations continue to look on it in that light.

However, the approaches that best address those are the ones that are in the "D" stage of R&D at best ~ the Indian thorium fueled reactor they hope to get done in this decade is a pressurized HWR design, and even if it does not have all of the same risks as a mid-20th century enriched uranium LWR, it shares more of them than the ones that are further from mature technology.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
