The last week of the Parliamentary term begins today with the long awaited decision on whether the UK should renew our nuclear deterrent. There is a minority of people who think that our nuclear deterrent is a waste of money but I am not one of them. I take the view that it has contributed to maintaining the peace since it was introduced. As with so many issues today it seems the Labour Party are split on the issue and I am not sure what their official view is. I can say that I will definitely be supporting the proposal to proceed with the renewal of our Trident nuclear submarines.
