Disgusting On Every Level [Jan. 23rd, 2017|01:39 pm]
Tony Grist
The ship the misfiring Trident missile was launched from is called HMS Vengeance. What a foul name!

Theresa May says she totally believes in the Trident system. How can she? Does she think we're stupid?

It is scandalous that parliament was asked to agree to a renewal of the system without being told about the time one of the missiles went wobbling off in the direction of a friendly power.

I'm hearing that in adopting the Trident system we signed an agreement with the manufacturers and the US government to keep everything to do with it extremely hush-hush- including, of course, how bloody useless it is. Who would sign such a servile and antidemocratic agreement? Our servile and antidemocratic leaders, of course.

Note, by the way, that we don't make the disgusting things ourselves. And they call it an "independent deterrent".

Whenever you buy American highly technological products, that's the terms & conditions you sign.
Not a commie fairytale...

The UK didn't even buy the Trident missiles - they're still owned by the US Navy, and are merely leased to the UK.

It's been a big story in the British media- and highly embarrassing to the government.
