Why I oppose Trident replacement

Andy Newman, Labour Party in Corsham High Street, Chippenham #
I am totally convinced that Trident replacement is contrary to the UK’s national interest. The expected cost of £130 bn is simply unaffordable, and these nuclear weapons are useless in addressing the changed national security landscape of the 21st century.

There is no other state that represents a credible strategic nuclear threat to the UK, and therefore the role of these weapons as deterence is obsolete. Britain should show moral leadership in embracing disarmament.
