We were poorly prepared for the last world war and only survived by the skin of our teeth.
We must not let that happen again. We would lose !!!
If Trident is outdated/too expensive, what is your alternative?
This also applies to some degree to the new Typhoon,
what is the alternative?
Many years ago, the Labour Party lost my vote when they were proposing unilateral disarmament, I know you are not proposing that, but you must state a clear defence policy that leaves us with a capable deterrent.
It is abhorred and expensive, but I believe that Mutually Assured Distruction is what has kept us alive for the last 65 years.
