Letter to the editor from David Payne, of Havepeace
MORE WARHEADS WILL NOT MAKE US SAFER
Haverhill Peace Group Havepeace is shocked by the UK Government’s intention to hugely increase its stockpile of nuclear weapons.
The announcement of a dramatic increase in the UK nuclear arsenal reverses Britain’s long standing principles and commitments to non proliferation.
Our Trident submarines already carry warheads that in total have an explosive yield equivalent to hundreds of the bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima.
We stand with millions across the world who are working towards the elimination of nuclear arsenals. It is almost immoral that the UK Government is committing resources which could be spent on the common good of our society.
This will not make any of us, or the world, safer.
