Makes no difference.

The majority are here to stay for a long time, and more get added to the grid
weekly.

Currently generating well over one third of the UK’s electricity.

In Oz, here. How do they rate as contributors to the base load?

'Currently' as in right at this moment of course.
Over the course of a year it's still around 20% which is still pretty
impressive.

As more of the older devices go offline due to a lack of maintenance and
spare parts, they'll litter your limited and precious land in a rusted
heap while UK's energy demands increase.

I’m sure they will be dismantled, like any other life-expired machine.

Why am I sure of this? Because the UK is an intelligent country.
