‘Post-Trident UK will be free of US foreign policy influence’ – anti-war group

Scrapping Britain’s Trident nuclear submarines will give Britain the opportunity to pursue its own foreign policy independent of the United States, Stop the War’s Chris Nineham told RT.

Nineham, who is vice-chair of the anti-war campaign group, said ditching Britain’s nuclear deterrent would distance the country from the United States’ “disastrous foreign policy.”

But if it has the impact of asserting the independence of British people from what has been the disastrous foreign policy that has been pursued by Washington over the last 15 years or more, then surely that’s a good thing,” he said.

The argument against Trident is about Britain developing its own independent foreign policy on the basis of seeking cooperation and understanding in the world, rather than trying to bomb countries that Britain does not like the regime of.

The comments came ahead of a demonstration in London on Saturday February 27 to stop the renewal of Trident nuclear weapons.

RT spoke with various figures organizing the demonstration at a Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) press conference on Tuesday.

The UK public and government are split over the Trident debate, which is expected to cost up to £167bn.

According to Prime Minister David Cameron, Trident is Britain’s “ultimate insurance policy.” He claims that under his government, “the submarines will be ordered” because he has taken “a decisive action to keep Britain safe.

Given the Conservative majority in the House of Commons and Labour MPs’ split stance on the issue, the renewal of Trident is expected to be approved by parliament later this year, although the actual process of replacing Trident submarines will only begin in 2028.

Turnout to this Saturday’s protest against Trident will play some part in determining the British public’s stance on whether the UK becomes a nuclear weapons-free country.


TAP – This is literally true.  Thatcher agreed that if US would supply UK with Trident, the US President could order the British armed frces to go to war.  Source – Gordon Logan.

    UK needs to be free from the insane foreign policy of the American/Israeli neocons.

    If only the US could be free of the 18 trillion owed to Rothschild!

    The UK still has to consider the 1233 treaty turning over the kitchen to Rome.

    Problem 1 Nuclear Blackmail – e.g. Rogue run quasi state Israel has nuclear armed subs and a dark record.

    Problem 2 this statement is naive and wrong. The ruling US regime aka the cabal will still have the same if not more influence on UK foreign policy.

    Look how both pro’s and anti’s never mention the third option. To design & build our own UK manufactured missiles and modify the subs to take them. Thus maintaining the military capability and REALLY loosening the grip of the US entity.

    Nuclear Weapons Do Not Exist!

    The following documentary explores the surprisingly abundant evidence that nuclear weapons are a hoax. Many of the nuclear explosion videos we have all seen and presumed real are shown to be complete fakes using model trees, houses and cars exploding on a set.

    The destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki appear not to be the result of one large explosion, but rather the result of a fire-bombing campaign comparable in pictures to Tokyo’s fire-bombed remains. Hiroshima and Nagasaki also never experienced anything like the hundreds or thousands of years of radiation predicted by nuclear scientists, in fact, vegetation began growing within a month after the bombing, and the Japanese people began rebuilding almost immediately!

    Some nuclear physicists even claim nuclear weaponry fraudulent based solely on the technical impossibilities of fission material not to be incinerated before triggering the necessary nuclear chain reaction.

    Check out the documentary, read through the excellent Nuke Lies Forum, and leave a comment what you think about this nuclear hoax. Was the government teaching school-children to hide under their desks just to induce fear and funnel black tax money into a fake Cold War arms race?

    • Atlantean conspiracy eric dubay BEWARE. He told us the earth was flat till Henry and I debunked him.

      Nevertheless I don’t want to spoil this. I hope its true. Yes witnesses said, the Hiroshima Nagasaki sites, were no more remarkable than other TNT sites elsewhere.

      So whats with the mushroom clouds then?
      Does this mean Kubrick with his 1963 Dr Strangelove or why I stopped worrying and learned to love the bomb……..was part of cabal psyopping? it wouldn’t be the first time Aldous
      – 1962 Lolita (we know the agenda there)
      – 1968 2001 a space odyssey
      – 1972 Clockwork orange, Government MKUltra mind control its citizens.
      – 1980 The Shining…….reincarnation?

      Kubrick seems to be doing the cabals bidding in some filmds, yet opposing the cabal in other films, trying to sail close to the wind as he could
      Then he was heart attacked then Warner Bros went ahead and so I understand, edited EWS themselves. I might be wrong on this

    Three Mile Island/Fukushima/Chernobyl [staged?] events aside, most Nuclear Power Stations appear to be no more than Dump Loads?



    • Staged? This is good news Aldous.
      Does this tie in with the Tap posts about ICBMs and nuclear weapons being nonsense? Very encouraging if it is.
      I do not trust my venturing out on these matters, looking at websites. So much disinfo out there. I will take comfort and trust you, that this stuffs staged.
      So that means……we needn’t worry about 50 fuskushimas going off after all if big cosmological events come? So…..the pacific floor being dead, and radiation sweeping across the pacific and planet. That’s staged or not true? 🙂

    Not mentioned is the fact that “Britain’s” nukes are under U.S. control.These U.S. made missiles can only be fired if the U.S. gives the launch codes
