Brits won't back unilateral nuclear disarmament - Lord Kinnock warns Corbyn.

BRITISH voters will not back unilateral nuclear disarmament, former Labour leader Lord Kinnock has warned Jeremy Corbyn.

The ex-leader's intervention came after the Scottish Labour conference endorsed a motion to scrap the Trident nuclear weapons system.

Lord Kinnock insisted that Labour was getting behind Mr Corbyn, but his comments came as a former Cabinet minister warned the Opposition's economics policies would result in failure.

Lord Kinnock said: "The debate is wide open.

"What I do know is the British people will not vote for unilateral disarmament.

"And that reality has to be dealt with."

The former party leader had earlier posed for a photograph with his wife Glenys and son Stephen Kinnock MP as he unveiled an English Heritage blue plaque at 23 Cliveden Place in Chelsea, London, the former home of Aneurin Bevan and Jennie Lee.
