From British daily The Independent:
Most people in Britain oppose the replacement of the Trident nuclear weapons system, a report shows.
A survey of 1,000 adults for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) revealed that almost two out of three were against a new generation of nuclear missiles.
CND said the result was a 5 per cent increase in public opposition to Trident replacement since a similar poll almost a year ago.
A 50,000-signature petition was handed in to 10 Downing Street yesterday as part of a campaign against Britain developing new nuclear weapons.
Opposition to Trident replacement has prompted a 300 per cent increase in membership of CND, with Chancellor Gordon Brown’s declaration of support for replacing the missile system accounting for a substantial rise in new membership requests.
Britain: nuclear power: here.
