(1) They very much agree that the next government should scrap its nuclear weapons rather than replace them with a new system.

(2) They very much agree that the SDSR should consider the possibility of non-replacement of Trident and a UK without nuclear weapons.

(3) They very much agree that the next government should support a nuclear weapons convention or ban, similar to those for chemical or biological weapons.

(4) They very much agree that the next government can not afford to replace Trident at an estimated cost of £100 billion.

Roger Godsiff of the Labour Party has responded.
Renewing Trident is dangerous, counter-productive and a waste of resources. Committing £100 billion to renew our nuclear deterrent is ridiculous at a time of austerity when so many of our services, including conventional defence forces, are being slashed. This is why I voted against Trident in the January debate in Parliament, and I will continue to oppose nuclear weapons. Nuclear proliferation with increasing powers of destruction will not make our world safer, and the route to non-proliferation is not to buy more weapons while expecting the rest of the world to do the opposite.

I am against Trident. We should be using the money to uplift the lives of many children who still continue to live in poverty. We should channel these funds to improve education levels and create jobs. We should invest in proper care for the elderly and those in need. We should invest the money in creating opportunities for the youth. We should use this money to improve the lives of residents in Sparkbrook, Springfiel, Hall Green, Mosley and Kings Heath. Road improvements and car Parking desperately needed for residents and small business owners. We should use the money to clean up our streets and improve the NHS. Not waste it on nuclear armament. We should invest in rebuilding community relations and breaking down barriers between the communities and create a United Community.
