Time to rethink Trident?

On 4th December 2006, the Government published a White Paper detailing its preferred option for the renewal of Trident. On the same day, the democratic left pressure group Compass launched a survey asking its members and members of the public to say what they thought. Over 1000 people responded. A clear majority of respondents (84%) said they did not think the UK should retain a nuclear deterrent after the current Trident system comes to the end of its working life – my own view. The full results of the survey can be seen here.
