Gill Walker on Trident
Apr 5, 2015
From The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament survey of candidates.
Gill Walker of the Green Party has responded.
They very much agree that the next government should scrap its nuclear weapons rather than replace them with a new system.
I am a member of the Green Party and wholeheartedly agree that we would not replace Trident and would would decommission the existing system.
They very much agree that the SDSR should consider the possibility of non-replacement of Trident and a UK without nuclear weapons.
Once again echoing the Green Party view that these weapons are immoral and expensive and would not use them under any circumstances.
They very much agree that the next government should support a nuclear weapons convention or ban, similar to those for chemical or biological weapons.
We need to move away from from this unhealthy reliance on these terrible weapons that are suppose to create peace and stability and in actual fact have the reverse happening where unstable and military dictatorships cannot wait to get their hands on them.
They very much agree that the next government can not afford to replace Trident at an estimated cost of £100 billion.
This in my opinion is vanity, when the cuts and the so called austerity measures are affecting the most vunerable in our society spending this astronomical amount of money on something so immoral beggars belief.
