JO SWINSON has been criticised for saying without hesitation that she would be prepared to use nuclear weapons if she became prime minister.
The Lid Dem leader stated her intentions on ITV on Tuesday night once PM Boris Johnson and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had debated on a separate programme.
The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament said it was a “disgraceful response.”
“Not even a moment’s hesitation about the prospect of killing millions of people. We need better than this,” the group said.
It came before the Lib Dems revealed their manifesto today, which Ms Swinson insisted would win the party “hundreds” of seats.
The manifesto is centered on a plan to spend a £50 billion so-called “remain bonus” on public services if the Lib Dems cancel Brexit.
Schools spending would rise by £10.6bn and there would be 20,000 more teachers, the manifesto says.
Labour’s shadow education secretary Angela Rayner said: “Young people getting into debts today of over £55,000 will never forget Lib Dems’ betrayal on tuition fees and austerity.”
