Telegraph: Scottish Labour's Trident vote does the impossible and makes Jeremy Corbyn's nuclear policy even more absurd

Telegraph: Scottish Labour's Trident vote does the impossible and makes Jeremy Corbyn's nuclear policy even more absurd

Article by James Kirkup


Lots of people try to reduce lots of political questions to binary choices, when of course they’re more complicated than that, shades of grey not black and white. Those are the issues when a bit of internal debate can be a good thing.
But some things are binary. Being a nuclear-armed state is like being pregnant: you either are or you’re not. Either is a perfectly acceptable state to be in, but you need to know which you are and act accordingly. Labour needs a single position on nuclear weapons, soon. Otherwise, it's dead. This really is a black and white issue.


The Labour Party is no longer fit to be a party of government.
