I've only voted Conservative once in my life and that was to stop michael foot getting rid of our nukes. I think nukes were there to protect our way of life. However if your way of life is going to a foodbank or doing a zero hour contract job then I don't think that is worth protecting and these people would be better off if Russia or China invaded!. For what I can see our nukes only protect the rich as well as giving billions to the US defense industry. More so why should we pay for nukes when most Nato countries don't? I would rather have every Nato member except the US pay an equel amount for nukes that can be rotated from one Nato country to another not unlike what already happens except this would involve sharing trident subs with mixed nation crews. The UK paying solely for trident when we need the money for other things is a non starter in my book. As for HS2 we will never see the benefit here in Newcastle so scrap it!
