Trident renewal

Labour’s policy on Trident is all over the place. It is completely and utterly incoherent, and this latest intervention leaves their position as clear as mud.

As I said in my maiden speech, on the 1st July 2015, sometimes I think that people’s approach to Trident is an abstract one, but in my constituency it is real; it is a weapon with the very real capacity to murder hundreds of millions of men, women and children.

It’s clear renewing Trident would be a wasteful and reckless spend on a weapons programme which is opposed by the overwhelming majority of parliamentarians in Scotland.
