Keeping Us Safe?

In June, as the House of Commons was preparing to vote on the "renewal" of Trident, a test firing of it veered off in the wrong direction and nearly hit Florida.

That was the first test in 16 years.

Read that over again.

The wretched thing had not been tested in 16 years.

But when it finally was, then it went the wrong way and almost hit the American mainland.

The Commons vote ought to be rerun.

And the Secretary of State for Defence, Sir Michael Fallon, who by the way has never had a job outside politics, ought to resign forthwith.
