Dick Smith has blasted local hypocrisy over nuclear power in his opposition to the South Australian submarine build.

Dick says it is unthinkable to convert nuclear subs to diesel -- as currently planned.

“I can’t believe it. You in South Australia -- you’re the second largest exporter of uranium in the world … but the hypocrisy is unbelievable.

“ ‘Oh no we don’t believe in nuclear power,’ ” Dick told FIVEaa brekky.

“Well that’s ridiculous. India has nuclear submarines, China has nuclear submarines … of course Great Britain, USA, France, all the rest …

“Why can’t we have the best?”
