ComRes poll today, which showed how 58% of the public want to scrap the Trident scheme will provide them with a bit more confidence so they can be the first to say, you know what, we don't need an alternative, it is economically and morally corrupt - just forget it all together and start thinking about nuclear disarmament..
It would be nice to think that this would happen. I mean, we are talking about efficiency and what should be cut to 'aspirations'. We should also look at polices that should be forgotten all together, and Trident and it's alternatives is one of them. It is a waste of money, and does little to help us achieve the goal of a more sustainable and fairer society. It's all about power, but someone needs to take a bold step and lead nuclear disarmament.
This is the Lib Dem's chance to shine and show the public that we are first in leading the debate around Trident. However, we need to highlight as well as the economic issues, the important moral issues wrapped up in it too, as these are easily forgotten, even by our party.
