Howard Allen of the Green Party has responded.
(1) They very much agree that the next government should scrap its nuclear weapons rather than replace them with a new system.
Are we, or is any other country, really prepared to destroy the world? Nuclear weapons hold no fear for the terrorists that are the current major threat to our shores. In the Ukraine the UK with all its nuclear weaponry has been pretty impotent, leaving it to Germany (that has no nuclear deterrent) to try and resolve the dispute. It\’s time to end the pointless macho posturing.
(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.
Eye watering amounts of money that is so badly needed to improve the lives of everyone in the UK
