Bridget says no to Trident replacement
This week MPs vote on the future of Britain’s ‘independent’ nuclear deterrent, Trident. The Labour government wants to commit now to replace Trident at an estimated cost of up to £20bn. Liberal Democrat MPs will all be voting against the Government’s proposals.
