Oxford Respect members were out campaigning on Barns Road this weekend, demanding that East Oxford New Labour MP Andrew Smith make his position on Trident clear.
The question is why waste £76bn on a system we don’t need, can never use, don’t control and even military analysts agree we don’t have to take a decision on for another 15 years?
The fear is that when Trident replacement is voted on in March New Labour MP’s will dutifully file into the yes lobby without any pretence to a public debate.
Oxford Respect is calling on Andrew Smith to take a stand and sign the EDM (Early Day Motion) calling on a full public consultation on Trident replacement.
