It really isn’t important. It’s what a test is for – to fix any bugs. It’s part of what you pay your money for. And if one misfires in a nuclear war, it’ll only be one more in the crowd.
Theresa May could have taken the issue head-on to say something like that, and say hang those who bitch and whine. It’s not as if they like her anyway, so she’ll lose no friends there.
What really matters is that Corbyn’s Labour Party will never win power, do not deserve to and should never deserve to. Life’s hard enough without a bunch of PC clowns making fusses over non-issues and calling us bigoted women and white van men every election campaign.
Those things happen in preperation for war! This story is the usual political diversion from moving on. Labour need to move on and rid themselves from momentum. An unexploded bomb is usually found in the Thames on occasion.
For people who do not think that history began in 1941, British nuclear weapons pointed at the United States are not necessarily such a bad idea. But unfortunately, if fired, then they would hit Europe or Africa instead.
Twice in as many days, we have had Cabinet Ministers come to a House of Commons to which they ought to have announced their resignations, but outrageously failed to do so. At least David Davis did not do the Pompous Tory Voice. But Michael Fallon, who has never had a job outside politics, has no idea that anyone speaks in any other way. While an American official was confirming that a stray Trident missile had almost hit Florida, the buffoon, Fallon, was praising that missile system’s accuracy live on television from the floor of the House.
Trident is rather like the European Union, in that the very great divisions over it in the country have not been reflected in Parliament since the defeat of Labour in 1983 licensed the branding as a loony of anyone who dissented from the Establishment view. That has not changed, on either issue. But we were, and we remain, right all along about the EU. And it is now blatantly obvious that we have been right all along about Trident.
Right by accident on the EU? Socialists often say they want to come out of the single market but keep open door immigration – wanting to throw away the good bit but keep the unfavourable by-product! Yeah, like the public agree with THAT!
And if you buy a gross of bananas, and one’s torn, you don’t just say ‘I’m through with bananas!’
If there was a cover up, it would only to have avoided needless PC screeching, which we have enough of anyway!
