The issuse of trident is too important to be left to politications and generals. it needs to be discussed in the pub, at the school gates and over the kitchen sink so that people aware of the issues involved and have had the opprtutinity to think them through.

Renewal of the Trident programme would extend Britain’s commitment to nuclear ‘deterrence’ well into the secound half of this century, despite treaty obligations and an ‘unequivocal undertaking’ to disarm.
