The UK Trident nuclear missile programme staggers-on regardless – sucking the life out of Britain’s military might?

   A post here “TRIDENT REPLACEMENT – its got to be a joke, but it isn’t funny?” November 22, 2015 by dadman007, set out the folly of going ahead with a new Trident system that would not only bankrupt the Country, but would prevent us in future having a proper Army, Airforce or Navy. Well, […]
