Letter from Nuclear Free Local Authorities

ImageGeorge Regan, Dundee councillor and chair of UK Nuclear Free Local Authorities has written to the Guardian to highlight public opposition to wasting billions on replacing Trident.

The result of the Guardian/ICM poll (Report, 14 July) that 54% want to scrap all UK nuclear weapons is heartening. In today's hard economic times it seems folly to be spending billions on a nuclear weapons system that will probably, and hopefully, never be used. What use is nuclear deterrence to the British soldiers dying in Afghanistan? Cutting nuclear stockpiles is the sensible way to reduce worldwide tensions. It could be one of Gordon Brown's greatest achievements if he leads the way on eliminating the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

Chair, Nuclear Free Local Authorities UK and Ireland
