Ken Livingstone brands US Defence Secretary’s comments on UK’s Trident deterrent ‘rubbish’ | UK Politics | The Independent

Ken Livingstone has branded claims by the US Defence Secretary that Britain must keep the Trident nuclear deterrent to maintain its “outsized” role in the world as “rubbish”.  Speaking to the Independent, the former London Mayor and co-convener of Labour’s defence review, said building the Trident submarines “which we will never use” at the expense of the armed forces will leave the UK more vulnerable to the threat of terrorism.
