Trident wasteful and dangerous

Published 11/05/2015

There has already been some publicity about the Trident replacement, but it deserves attention for a variety of reasons.

Replacing Trident could soak up an absolutely enormous sum of money, which would not be available for any other purpose.

The current Trident system is the UK's largest WDM (weapon of mass destruction) and it is almost inconceivable that it would be used.

So, not only is it dangerous, it is also wasteful of resources at a time when the UK is suffering - particularly Northern Ireland - as cuts bite.
