The need for nuclear weapons is gone.
Blair is planning to renew Trident with more sophisticated weaponry at a staggering pounds 25bn. Michael Meacher and Clare Short, pictured, have spearheaded a major Commons campaign to stop Blair secretly updating these weapons, which I hope will be supported by all our local MPs.
It would have been terrifying had nuclear weapons been used against the Soviet Union, with carnage on a massive scale. But when has there ever been a need for such weapons? Who are we going to target?
The money could be ploughed into needy causes like the NHS and free travel for pensioners.
