More money for nuclear weapons, less for poor Britons

This video from Britain says about itself:

A short film of the demonstration on the streets of London in February 2007. Thousands marched from Hyde park to Trafalgar square to protest against the government’s proposed renewal of Britain’s nuclear arsenal, and against the continued intervention in Iraq.

From British daily The Morning Star:

MPs launch attack on weapons decision

Tuesday 10 March 2009

ONE hundred MPs protested against foolish Whitehall mandarins and ministers on Tuesday who are conspiring behind closed doors to waste £75 billion on a new generation of nuclear weapons.

They warned that a crucial new stage in the upgrading of the Trident missile system is likely to be foisted upon the nation while Parliament is closed down for the summer recess.

The MPs signed a Commons motion headed by Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn, who said it was “simply crazy” at a time of dire economic crisis to be even thinking about spending such huge sums on weapons of mass destruction.
