PEACE activists rubbished Westminster claims yesterday that Britain’s Trident nuclear arsenal could prevent “blackmail” by other nuclear powers.
The Independent Trident Commission sought to shore up the case for a £65 billion overhaul of the ageing nuclear-armed submarine fleet docked at Scotland’s Faslane naval base.
The commission — set up in 2011 by the British American Security Information Council — said that the project’s cost “must be of secondary importance.”
A council statement said: “The impact of the UK’s falling victim to ongoing strategic blackmail or nuclear attack is so significant that, even if the chances appear slim today, there is sufficient uncertainty surrounding the prospect that it would be imprudent to abandon systems that have a high capacity to counter such threats.”
But the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament’s Kate Hudson dismissed the report as a “rehash” of cold war thinking.
