    It was a question, not a comparison, but thank you for responding in such a charming manner. Yes I am happy to stop wasting money on Trident and you cannot prove that such a move would lead to nuclear Armageddon. Btw, who are you worried about?

    Thanks to mismanagement of the economy by the Tories over last 7 and a bit years, I don’t think it matters much how much we end up paying the EU, we’ll still be in heaps of debt.

    Apart from the obvious, what’s the real difference between say 890 billion and 900 billion?

    What we do need though is cash flow which means trade, and we can’t afford to disadvantage ourselves in one of the 3 biggest markets in the world, especially considering it’s over half of our current export market.

    And don’t forget, trade and exports means jobs.

    It doesn't matter how much we pay them?

    We throw billions at them for nowt and that's ok?

    Jesus you're desperate.

    With a bit of luck nobody or we could hit them back...... Mind you that loony in N Korea might not worry too much about that........ Seriously, I have mixed feelings on this one. Maybe keeping older nukes as a deterent rather than the shiny zillion pound nukes that " Harrods Would Sell You " might be a better option/compromise..

    Any of the "rogue states" like N Korea. aren't going to be bothered much about whether we have them or not when going through the who shall we attack discussions. The fact that we don't actually have a truly independent deterrent and rely on the USA for delivery capability, doesn't make me feel warm and fuzzy either.
