From Nuclear To Enterprise

So, is the Public Accounts Committee part of some Trotskyist plot, then? Or was it Jeremy Corbyn who caused this shortfall of £20 billion? How much? And that is only the shortfall on the support infrastructure. Just scrap this whole wretched thing.

We need the cancellation of Trident in favour of rebuilding the conventional Armed Forces, in favour of care for veterans, in favour of flood defences, and in favour of an “all of the above” energy policy based around civil nuclear power and around this country’s vast reserves of coal, with the commanding heights in reformed public ownership, with no need for fracking even in its own terms, and with the requirement of the approval of the House of Commons before energy or water prices could be increased.

In the case of Trident, we could pay the affected shipyard workers quite eye-watering sums in compensation, and still save amounts that there were scarcely the adjectives to describe.

Another hung Parliament is coming, and our people need to hold the balance of power in it. My crowdfunding page is here, or email for other options. That address accepts PayPal.
