Gordon needs to "Get Real" over Trident

Gordon told Nick to "Get Real" about Trident, the UKs independent nuclear deterrent Weapon of Mass Destruction.

No, Gordon, you get real. Your argument about Trident being an insurance policy does not stack up. Nuclear deterrence is totally illogical.

We cannot afford the £100 billion cost of Trident - nor any substitutes. We need to save money. We have a huge budget deficit, remember?

Even cold warriors like Kissinger are calling for a nuclear-free world. The only place for Trident and the UK's non-independent nuclear WMD is on the negotiating table, on the way to a world 100% free of nuclear weapons.
