Money no object, Trident should be replaced by a British nuclear weapons system.

To elaborate, this new system would be British made, and serviced in the UK. Only the UK would have the codes also (though to clarify, Currently the UK does not need US permission to launch).

  • The UK does not need permission to deploy but the system is American built, American maintained and the US even has the codes and sold us out to Russia. As I say, only the Prime minister can authorise a deployment and the US cannot object, but they certainly should not know our codes when they simply give them away and the system is hardly "independent".
