This week the UK made a hefty commitment to renew its Trident nuclear weapons system.
For some MPs that renewal is all about protecting jobs.
At Wednesday's PMQs the UK's new unelected Prime Minster Theresa May was thanked by a self-satisfied and self-indulgent Labour MP Jamie Reed for holding the unnecessary Trident debate and vote Monday.
Reed once again showed he is not trustworthy, has no real Labour Party loyalty and is too busy working at humiliating the party leader Jeremy Corbyn to fufil his elected political role.
Theresa May was given an easy ride in the mainstream media post PMQs but for those of us old enough to have experienced the Thatcher years she is nothing new.
She is just another Tory though in her case one who was elected Tory party leader and movd into the PM role by a minority. The vote did not go out to party members let alone the country.
For those who oppose the Renewal of Trident the above meme tells it as it is.
But how safe is Trident?
This week one of our nuclear subs got into difficulty off Gibraltar and below is an image and part of a report published by the Daily Mail:
This is Britain's newest and most advanced £1.1billion nuclear submarine lying damaged in its Gibraltar port today after she crashed into a merchant ship during a training exercise.
But that is not the first incident and is unlikely to be the last.
That may mean that a disaster is inevitable.
Check out the report below from CND Scotland. The year is unclear but it remains relevant:
