Nuclear Weapons Replacement

I used to be a great believer in nuclear deterrent.

In fact my software was used to plan the Chevaline project, which was the updating of the Polaris missiles by the Callaghan government. That project was so secret, very few people still know of it. We certainly don’t want another uncosted, secret project like that, where politicians do what they think is best.

Now, I think it is an irrelevance.

The most likely people to attack us will be stateless terrorists, probably with a dirty bomb.

It would be far better that we spent the money saved in two ways; better conventional forces to sort out trouble spots and better intelligence to make sure we don’t get another Iraqi face and stop the terrorists before they strike.
