LibDems call for end to continuous at-sea nuclear deterrence
LibDems call for end to continuous at-sea nuclear deterrence

The Herald, Wednesday 17 July 2013
The Liberal Democrats have called for a historic scaling-back of the Trident nuclear deterrent, despite warnings it could put the UK at risk and claims it would save just £50 million a year. Danny Alexander, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury, said it would be wrong to blindly continue with a system he denounced as the last bastion of the Cold War. Announcing the results of a Coalition review into alternatives to Trident, he called for an end to one of deterrent’s key principles – 24-hour patrols.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
