Nick Harvey has told MPs that the timetable might slip for the renewal of Trident. He has made no suggestion that there is a proper re-evaluation of the part Trident plays in our defence. The correct thing is not to treat Trident separately but to subject it to the same scrutiny as the rest of the defence spending. It is not just a question of whether it is value for money but rather what part it plays in furthering our foreign policy objectives. War, armies is just policy pursued by other means.
