£800 million for Ministry of Defence


OK now we have it. On the back of the Russian spy poisoning the government has now surprisingly found £800 million for the Ministry of Defence, which was announced by Theresa May during prime minister’s question time this last Wednesday. Most of the money £600 million will go to the multibillion pound plan for 4 nuclear armed Trident/Dreadnought submarines to replace the aging ones we have and have never used. This is money that could be better spent on health and housing, not wars that will never happen. A great many people in this country opposes funding for more nuclear weapons so the government comes up with an idea that will persuade the population to change their mind. Their minds are not their own. So now it looks like the defence budget will not be scraped as Chancellor Philip Hammond has said.

Trident WMD renewal

nuclear-weapons-test-67557_960_720
The misguided fools in Westminster have just voted to continue with the Trident nuclear missile so called defence contract renewal. The vote was 472 to 117 to renew this death machine, these weapons of mass destruction.

It seems now that the Tories brought forward the vote in order to further spit the Labour party to try and get rid of Jeremy Corbyn. We live in a democracy don’t we? If the UK government had put the Trident renewal to a referendum instead of playing with people’s lives, the people would have a real chance to tell the government otherwise.

Prime Minister Teresa May says she is prepared to put her finger on the nuclear button and possible kill hundreds of thousands of innocent people in some foreign land. Teresa May says that we need these weapons for our defence but most of the countries on this planet do not have nuclear weapons.

Does the rest of the world need to get their own in order to make the world a safer place?

If the UK government wanted instead to stock pile chemical or biological weapons to protect our boarders then there would be a national outrage, but nuclear missiles that can kill just as well and in great numbers is somehow OK. We are indeed controlled by misguided fools.
