    Oh yes, the MP’s vote about this in March. I am not expecting good news. It’s amazing how many MP’s have U-turned on the Trident issues. I’ll be very interested to see which naughty rebels vote against it.

    Anyway, we need to get lobbying…

    Incidentally, did we ever get that promised public debate about this?

    Debate? Oh yes. We commoners do that down the pub or via da blog. Those in power stitch things up over a glass of jolly nice port. The wiff of class division & empire never did go away really. Even if it’s dressed up as big business & globalisation today. Never mind, there’s always a lovely afternoon anti-trident stroll to be had next weekend. Tea & sandwiches anyone?

    Very true indeed.

    Me and my kids will hopefully make it down there. We can be there and back in the day…train timetables and costs pending.

    Excellent!

    Took my daughter on the ‘lets not go to war in Iraq pretty please Tony’ march in 2003. She was only 2 but there were so many families there it made the atmosphere all the more potent (ie. non-violent middle of the road voters saying that their dear leader has got it wrong). And that is the day clearly that Blair started to lose the plot by ignoring a million plus ordinary folk.

    The Government says only 350 people hav written to them on the issue:

    Colin Challen (Morley & Rothwell, Labour)
    To ask the Secretary of State for Defence how many contributions have been received from (a) members of the public and (b) organisations on the consultation on a replacement for Trident.
    Des Browne (Secretary of State, Ministry of Defence)
    holding answer 23 January 2007
    The Government received approximately 350 letters, either direct or through MPs, between the announcement of 4 December on the future of the United Kingdom’s nuclear deterrent and 18 January. We do not as a matter of routine record whether these letters are from individuals or organisations.

    Time to get writing as well as marching. See you on the 24th.

    But people put their efforts into email campaigns these days don’t they? Bet they don’t count those. No one knows how to right a letter anymore. šŸ™‚
