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, […]

The UK’s TRIDENT weapon system – unacceptably UNRELIABLE?

At the back end of 2015, a post was published here [TRIDENT REPLACEMENT – it’s got to be a joke, but it isn’t funny?], that posed 16 pertinent questions that MPs needed to ask themselves before they debated about replacing the ‘current’ TRIDENT system and voted on it. Now, there apparently was one glaring omission […]

TRIDENT REPLACEMENT – its got to be a joke, but it isn’t funny?

Later, sometime next year, our erstwhile MPs are going to decide about proceeding with the full Trident replacement at an enormous cost, that is likely to bankrupt this Country. The current Trident 1 has been operational only half a dozen years more than it took to get it into service in 1994, when it replaced […]

Britain and Nuclear Weapons – should we keep them?

There should be no doubt in anybody’s mind – rightly or wrongly the atom bomb brought an early end to the Second World War with Japan. In conjunction with the Americans we dropped two such nuclear bombs on Japan wiping out the cities of Hiroshima & Nagasaki. Not dropped on military installations that we might […]

Scottish Independence ‘its all over now’ – OR is it?

  Anyone who thinks that the turmoil of the past month on Scottish Independence was over on Friday 19th September 2014, has another think coming, surely? The fallout (in more than one sense of the word!) from the Referendum campaign, we can dread, is going to be felt far and wide for a considerable time? […]

The scaredy-cat Scots have flunked it – GOOD or BAD?

  Well at last the cat is out of the bag, as the saying goes. And it turns out to be a big scaredy-cat at that, doesn’t it? The timid Scottish nation (well the ‘stay-at-homers’, the ones without the nous to flee the nest like the majority of Scots), plus the foreign de-campers and squatters, […]

‘Scottish Independence’ – the Sands of Time have run out haven’t they?

  NO VOTERS YOU will vote NO if you think an Independent Scotland: makes you frightened or fearful, and you are constrained by benefits or loses, and Scotland  is irresponsibly turning its back on England and Union is economically vulnerable and unable to fully pay its way, so can expect economic ruin can’t make it […]

Independence – how to Destroy or Revive a Football Team?

The Chief Exec of a Group of four Football teams [one premiership outfit and three satellites] was totally fed up with a massive assertive groups of players causing them difficulties (by asking for better wages and bonuses treatment), and cleverly set out to bring them to heel and indeed destroy them completely. There was a […]

If Scotland votes to go ‘INDEPENDENT’, some people are culpable surely –what names are in the frame?

    There can be no doubt now that the question of Scottish Independence has been handled abysmally by both those in charge of the UK’s Union destiny and by some others who will carry onerous responsibility for the outcome. The opinion polls have shown that the YESs and NOs are sharing the same ground […]

Scots Independence YES campaign ‘On the Ropes’ – misinformation peddled by the NOs?

    The Polls are providing ‘wobbling’ results for the Referendum. Why is that? It is because the ‘don’t knows’ are unaccounted for, different polls always give disparaging results and critically also both sides are running neck & neck so the differences are well within the normal margins of error – the vote is too […]
