And here, courtesy of the Stop The War Coalition site is what certain people said about Britain's nuclear weapons in the past -

Tony Blair: "Labour is the only party pledged to end the nuclear madness." (1982)

Gordon Brown: The Trident programme is “unacceptably expensive, economically wasteful and militarily unsound”. (1984)

Peter Hain: 'The more direct action there is against nuclear weapons in Britain, the greater the freedom a Labour government will have to get rid of them.' (1983)
