Tri­dent re­newal

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Mar­garet says she will con­tinue to fight against Tri­dent re­newal:

“In times of aus­ter­ity to spend £100bn on tri­dent re­newal is ab­so­lutely ridicu­lous. It’s ab­so­lutely crazy. That money could be spent in much bet­ter ways.

“We will be con­tin­u­ing to fight against that.

“There’s tra­di­tional army re­sources it could be put into as well.

“You hear sto­ries of peo­ple put out to war who don’t have the right equip­ment to do the job, so why not put it into the tra­di­tional side rather than weapons of mass de­struc­tion that we’re never go­ing to use.

“They seem quite keen to re­new it, but we have it on our doorstep here so I didn’t know how keen they would be if it was moved else­where which I don’t think is a choice any­way.”
