Scrap Trident - Thinking The Unthinkable

Paul Blanchard | Posted 26.05.2015 | UK Politics
Paul Blanchard

In my view, those countries with a nuclear deterrent are putting themselves more at risk from today's threats. We're not spending our money wisely. We're taking the heat off those countries without nukes. They're letting us spend the cash on Trident while they focus on what matters: tackling terrorism and stopping the growth of terrorist groups.

UK Nuclear Policy Now: Questions Remain

Paul Ingram | Posted 15.05.2015 | UK Politics
Paul Ingram

National security is deeply linked to the trajectories of nuclear proliferation, arms races and the success of diplomatic efforts to stem the tide. Future British governments would do well to maximise their efforts to develop a globally cooperative approach that undercuts the drivers of proliferation and reduces the salience nuclear weapons have to all states, and maximises the tendency in them all to act in a social responsible manner, with or without nuclear weapons. How they can do this effectively in the coming years must be at the top of their foreign policy agenda.

Ed Miliband has made it clear, on numerous occasions, he won't get into bed with Nicola Sturgeon. In fact some of his most passionate responses have come when dealing with this question. We now know Russell Brand has more chance of securing a cabinet position as there is clearly a very good chance he and Ed have at least shared a bed.
