from The Daily Bell:
Britain backs renewal of Trident nuclear programme … Trident programme involves four new vessels at an estimated cost of $54bn over the next 20 years. British prime minister affirms she would order nuclear strike … Despite opposition from the pro-independence Scottish National Party (SNP) and some in the opposition Labour Party, parliament approved the Scottish-based nuclear-armed Trident submarines by 472 to 117 votes. – Al Jazeera
Why is Britain going to pay nearly $55 billion to “renew its ageing nuclear weapons system?”
It consists of four submarines with Trident missiles.
Why does it cost so much?
What are they doing?
Why isn’t it reported on in more detail?
It’s not a popular system. Naval nuclear weapons technician William McNeilly recently published an expose of it.
He documented 30 alleged safety and security flaws in an 18-page document: “failure to check ID cards, fire risks from rubbish, the flouting of safety procedures, and a cover-up of a collision with a French nuclear submarine.”
There’s certainly a lot of carelessness surrounding these devastating nuclear weapons.
For us, nukes resemble a dominant social theme. At least partial propaganda in other words.
