A Rocket Up The Racket

Some of us do not think that nuclear weapons and NATO membership were the only good things that the Attlee Government ever did.

Indeed, some of us wonder why anyone, anywhere on the political spectrum, would wish to vote for a weapons system that by 2020 will be subject to either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.

Or to vote for a military alliance that committed us to the defence of Erdogan's Turkey while presuming to demand two per cent of our GDP.

In the constituency containing Lanchester, and now expected to be called West Durham and Teesdale, no one will have to vote for either of those things.

From anywhere on the political spectrum, everyone in that constituency will be able to vote for me instead.
