  • the real Sunday Best was Will Hutton’s Observer article

  • .brianD 23rd Feb ’15 – 2:21pm——-“…….the real Sunday Best was Will Hutton’s Observer article”

    Brian,
    Thank you for pointing out this interesting piece from The Observer. The Hutton article which should raise questions for proper Liberal Democrats begins thus —

    “….There are doubts and debates at the highest level of the civil service about the cost of Trident. … … The cost verges on the impossible, with unpalatable and irrational choices forced on the rest of our military capability to pay for a weapon system that will never be used. …”

    “…Yet when the Church of England’s bishops urge that the question be publicly discussed as part of a grownup debate about the future of our country and the quest for the common good, they are dismissed by right-of-centre commentators, Tory MPs and some ministers as a bunch of closet leftists making a political statement. ”

    The top of the party has adopted a ridiculous “anchors in the centre” policy on Trident which says we wll continue to spend £ Billions but pretend that we are “talking a step down the nuclear ladder”. We should be kicking tha ladder away and all the stupid “Great Power” pretentious that go with it.

    We do not need Trident, we cannot afford it and even if we could it is a pointless example of 1960s cold war paranoia that makes no sense in 2015.
