The Polling Station 4 – Trident

The Polling Station is a podcast of around 5 minutes with short informative little pieces on the election matters that are being missed, evaded, obfuscated or terminalogically inexactituded in the normal election coverage. It’ll be every day between now and the election, with Ivan McKee, myself and others.

This is the 4th episode, you can find the others here.

507-nuclear-weaponsIn this episode we look at the plans to replace Trident. Is it worth the money? Is it good military strategy? And what about the Red Menace. What about the SNP red line?

Oh, and a bonus point for anyone who can tell me why I stuck that little bit of music on at the end. It wasn’t because there will be another episode tomorrow.

Hope you enjoy…

“It is such a supreme folly to believe that nuclear weapons are deadly only if they’re used. The fact that they exist at all, their presence in our lives, will wreak more havoc than we can begin to fathom. Nuclear weapons pervade our thinking. Control our behavior. Administer our societies. Inform our dreams. They bury themselves like meat hooks deep in the base of our brains. They are purveyors of madness. They are the ultimate colonizer.”
