20% off megadeath?
So our new nuclear subs will only carry 160 warheads rather than 200. So that’s just 160 cities full of civilians we could wipe out if we wanted to – I wonder who the lucky 40 now off the target list are?
UNISON backs CND in its opposition to Trident replacement, as does the TUC. Public opinion is against Trident replacement and there is no rational argument in favour.
To those who argue that the possession of nuclear weapons is some sort of insurance policy I would suggest that they do some internet research on insurance. A variety of competitive products are on the market if you need some insurance – none of which involve spending billions of pounds on weapons of mass destruction!
