Britain As A Nuclear Power

Full nuclear weapons debate urged

So the Cold War is over and there is no great threat to us from any major nuclear power. As mentioned by MPs they could serve no useful purpose in the fight against terror, so the only real reason to keep them is for insurance.

And yet we won't let countries like Iran develop them (admittedly not having more countries with Nuclear weapons is a good thing). Surely, we should stop being hypocritical about this?

Not having Nuclear weapons anymore would send a powerful political message out to the world saying they're not needed in modern society. Surely it's worth whatever risk there is in not having them to do this?

I know I'm late to the party on this one. My brother is an officer in the US navy, somewhat high up and is a submariner. The scary thing to know is that the cold war is still going on under the water. Nothing has changed there. Nothing at all.
