Britain ‘is tiptoeing towards 3rd era of nuclear standoffs

Monday 14th November 2016

BRITAIN is “tiptoeing towards a third era of nuclear confrontation in Europe,” warned SNP MP George Kerevan on Saturday.

Mr Kerevan told the Scottish Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) at a meeting in Glasgow that the US’s decision to move its nuclear bombs to Romania following last July’s attempted coup in Turkey was “not about safety but rather a very serious threat to the Russians.”

The East Lothian MP also slammed the influence of Britain’s war lobby saying: “Every day at Westminster the military are there in force, backed up by all the major defence companies.”

The British army and Nato are shifting their focus from “counter-insurgency” to full-on war with Russia, he warned, which could “provoke a crisis.”

Mr Kerevan suggested that a North Atlantic peace movement should be created to prevent Nato’s militaristic build-up.

“We need a campaign to get the tactical nuclear weapons out of Europe altogether, return to the conventional forces treaty and remove the anti-ballistic missile shields,” he said.

Scottish CND secretary Janet Fenton warned that nuclear weapons were “the greatest threat we face” as their use would kill millions and “completely poison the planet.”

She welcomed the passing of a “landmark resolution” by the United Nations last month which “brings an end to two decades of absolute paralysis” on multilateral disarmament — though Britain voted against it.

The resolution triggers a UN conference in March aimed at negotiating a treaty which would outlaw nuclear weapons.
