More on Trident

Lib Dem Voice carries a press release from Ming Campbell on Trident. (and for those who saw BBC2's 5 days I wonder if Ming has a pet-and does he look like it?):

'If fierce cuts are to be made in Britain’s conventional forces, surely we have to consider whether replacing Trident can be justified'

I don't really care if the Tories come round to our way of thinking on the grounds of cost, or because of a more sensible recognition of our strategic needs or for moral reason. Labour failed to make the right decision on any grounds. Mind you wait for the howl from the Tory backbenches.

Post a Comment

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
