SIR JEREMY OPPOSES TRIDENT

Sir Jeremy Greenstoock

The former British Ambassador to the United Nations Sir Jeremy Greenstock is the latest ‘establishment’ figure to come out publicly against Trident. He said ‘Time is ticking away as the non-proliferation regime gradually erodes... The five nuclear powers under the treaty (China, France, the Russian Federation, the UK and the US) have to be prepared to make compromises in a credible global effort to stem nuclear proliferation. There is little sign of that at the moment.’

And Sir Jeremy is not alone in highlighting the implications of British policy. The former Secretary General of the UN Kofi Annan, the Director of the IAEA, Mohamad El Baradei, and former UN chief inspector Hans Blix have all pointed out that renewing Trident sets a bad example for other countries.
