"Labour to join Tories in backing a £25bn deal to renew Trident fleet."
At last a Labour Party policy that makes sense.
while the poor, disabled and vunerable suffer so we can be equipped to fight bloody wars that is nothing to do with us, yeah right Paul
This has nothing to do with the poor, disabled and vulnerable except protecting them from harm.
No body wants nuclear weapons, but there are a necessary evil. Especially now as more and more states have them.
They will be used again, it's just human nature.
but this country is in massive debt and has to cut the Welfare Bill to make ends meet, or am I the stupid one. I was in the Royal Observer Corps many years ago and it was wildly believed then that their would never be a Nuclear War as it would be futile, you have more to fear from Chemical or Germ Warfare
With a bit of luck the contracts to build the new nuclear deterent will be placed only with British companies, and will provide plenty of skilled engineering jobs with real wages. This in turn should reduce at least one sector of the unemployed benifit claimers. Its swings and roundabouts.
@Brazilnut as an ex-service person you should be well aware of this country's requirement for an efficient nuclear deterent. being ex ta myself i fail to understand why you would back a load of immigrant benifit scroungers before your country's security. whats really needed to cut the benifit bill is for this government to grow some balls, ignore the bloody stupid eu human rights laws, round up the illegals etc and kick em out. stop the foriegn aid and arms supply, and remember who won two world wars.
I seriously believe that Pauls comments are aimed directly at people who have given nothing to British society but come here solely because of the ease in which they can obtain money for nothing. If the genuine pensioners, disabled, needy and poor are being discriminated against or treated more unfairly than the rest of us, why are the newspapers not full of condemnation stories from their relevant supporting organisations, i.e Age UK, Salvation Army and all the other charities involved.
the papers only write what they want to sell papers , and also it depends what papers you read
