ScrapTrident


3 minutes from Doomsday

Since 1947 the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists has each year set the "Doomsday Clock" to illustrate how close the world is to nuclear war. The clock has just been moved 2 minutes closer and now stands at 3 minutes to midnight. One reason is that the nuclear-armed nations, including the UK, are all modernising their arsenals of nuclear weapons.  

The move comes as the House of Commons rejected an SNP motion which had said that Trident should not be renewed. The final decision on this £100 billion programme will be made in 2016 by the MPs elected in May's General Election.
