The case for keeping Trident dwindles by the day

Faslane anti Trident demo
In a letter to the Guardian Richard Lawson made this rather wonderful point:

“In the Guardian, 1 April, on page 25 we read that “we will appear dangerously weak if we are prepared to give up [Trident] insurance”. On page 26 we read that “the central committee of the Workers’ Party made clear that it sees nuclear weapons as guaranteeing the nation’s life”. For the avoidance of all misunderstanding, page 25 is about the UK Labour party and therefore sound and reasonable, and page 26 is the opinion of dangerously irrational North Korean nuclear fanatics.
Dr Richard Lawson
Churchill, North Somerset”

Interesting what the light of rational scrutiny shows up…
