    Time to Bin Trident

    Let’s spend £100 billion on health, housing & renewables: not nuclear weapons.


    In early 2016, parliament will vote on whether to renew the Trident system of nuclear weapons.

    Costing over £100 billion across 40 years, it will be the biggest spending decision this parliament makes.

    Instead, that money could pay for any of these things:

    • Fully fund all A&E services for the next 40 years.
    • Build 1.5 million affordable homes.
    • Enough wind-turbines to power all UK households.
    • Scrap tuition fees for 4 million students.

    It’s time to consign Trident to the rubbish bin, and instead focus on peace-building, cooperation and justice.
