No Trident, Better Flood Defence. Is that too simple?.
On a day when there are not sufficient troops to help in the disaster relief in our own country, it was wonderfully woeful to watch 'Our Gordon' lying through his teeth about where the troops are.
Even Peter Sissons on the Beeb commented on that, despite all the film of the unfolding problems, we never saw a soldier - they all seem to be prospecting for oil (or rather Big Oil).
Could Bruno - Meyer Lansky to Blair's Capone - also tell us why we need Trident rather than proper infrastructure ie flood defences and adaquate sewerage.
As we in the West of Scotland are next in line for the torrents of rain (we are more used to it here, must be said) as well as the new Trident subs, I thought I would show you one of my holiday snaps from a sunny place.
