It’s always good to know where people stand on the great issues of the day. Jim “Omelette” Murphy voted FOR renewing the UK’s Trident nuclear missiles at an estimated cost of £100 billion. We all know how easily these estimates on defence contracts can spiral out of control so I wouldn’t be surprised if the total cost was double the estimate.
These hugely expensive weapons of mass destruction are illegal under international law since they do not discriminate between civilians and belligerents, they just kill everyone. They are an incredible waste of money and the only purpose they really serve is to salve the egos of Westminster politicians by keeping the UK’s permanent seat on the UN Security Council.
