The British people need to face-up to the fact that we now live in a lawless society – but whose fault is it?

Over three years ago, a post here identified the problem of our police forces’ downward spiral caused by cutbacks [The UK Police ‘underfunded’ and ‘under resourced’….], and six months ago another post here covered the fact that the problems had got unbelievably worse, that knife crime was out-of-control, and it suggested the background reasons [England’s […]

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 […]

Why Britain MUST have the Trident replacement – NOT?

Fat Man A-Bomb Nagasaki Trident launch     Britain already has a shed load of nuclear bombs. The current method of attack delivery is the submarine Trident system, but after thirty five years this is nearing its ‘best before’ date. The cost of replacement (a hundred billion pounds over forty years?) to be operational in […]

Britain was an original Nuclear Power – so let’s keep Trident?

Fat Man A-Bomb Nagasaki Trident launch Seventy years ago Britain played its full part in the US dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan, wiping out a quarter of a million people, (half of them slowly) and mostly civilians [the standard military excuse of ‘collateral damage’ won’t wash on that one will it?].  Somehow or […]

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 […]
