    Right decision made. The whole thing was confusing but it became clear to me over the last few days that this Jolly amendment was the way forward.

    A totally unfair characterisation. We are now committed to vote against Trident next year, and have rejected unilateralism in favour of multilateralism.

    Well done Conference!

  • Back to the same question, Toby Fenwick. What multilateralism?

    Thanks Paul

    Tim, happy to discuss.
