Nut jobs? Did you know that Iran has a large Jewish and Christian population who are allowed by law to drink Alcohol because it is their right? The BBC always seem to fail to mention stuff like that for some reason, Maybe for the same reason the BBC has completely ignored the fact that The USA has stabbed us in the back about the Falklands issue by not reporting that Obama has made it clear that we are not worthy of him and declared the special alliance as none existent and giving the Argies an excuse to kick up trouble again...

Did Clegg say he'd scrap the deterent completely, or did he say that they just wouldn't spend money upgrading Trident? How many nuclear warheads do we have? How many are needed? Surely only half a dozen or so would ensure the obliteration of humanity? Paying for more is just a waste.

Everytime I hear someone mention a "hung" Parliament I can't help but smile :oops:

Oh, and according to that test I'm 78% Lib Dem.

How does it look ? I can't see the voting process when I can't vote.

Cheers.

Was wondering, do you guys not have a Christian Party and a Green Party ? Or are they just too small to be in the list on their own ?

And what are the rules on kicking off your own political party ? In my country to be able to stand for a general election either as a party or as an individual you'll need about 20,000 signatures. And if you fail to get elected you'll have to go out and get a new 20,000 signatures if you want to try again at the next general election. Is it similar in the UK or can anyone stand for election ?

A little easier here Alex - we only need 10 votes and £500

http://www.parliament.uk/about/how/members/electing_mps/candidates.cfm
People wishing to stand as an MP must be over 18 years of age, and a British citizen, or citizen of a Commonwealth country or the Republic of Ireland.

Candidates must be nominated by ten parliamentary electors of the constituency they wish to stand in.

Authorisation is required to stand for a specific party, otherwise candidates will be described as independent or have no description.

In order to encourage only serious candidates to stand, a £500 deposit is required when submitting the nomination papers - returned if the candidate receives over five per cent of the total votes cast.

Does anyone know that our nuclear deterrent is so old it probably does not work?

we have the capability to produce nuclear missiles within ten months if needed. We don't need many, just enough to scare others (USA) if need be.

I agree that a minimum deterent should be maintained. I don't believe that any country needs the amount of missiles they have stockpiled (like 1,000s). You could pretty much annihilate a country with less than 10 missiles. Even then, you'd harm your own interests because global economies and climate would be changed to the detriment of food supply for your own people. There'd also be retaliation and the whole thing gets out of control. Nuclear shrinkage is a good idea, especially in hard times when you need the money somewhere else.

You know all this talk of saving money by scrapping the nuclear warheads that the Lib Dems seem to like (to a limited degree) and the Greens etc would love....I can't help but wonder if they've got any idea how much it'd cost to actually get rid of them?

If you look at say Sellafield and how much it costs to process the nuclear fuels at their plant then imagine doing that on a lot of missiles and then finding somewhere to store extremely highly radioactive materials. And thats without worrying about moving them to the facility (not good having them stuck in the missiles) and then working out how to get it all out of there etc. Not going to be cheap at all and actually might be more cost effective to leave it in the missles, most of which are already scattered around the world in the nuclear subs.

Oh and erm, since we're scrapping the missiles we might as well scrap the subs too and deal with all the nuclear stuff from those which we weren't expecting to do for another 50 years. They still think this is going to save money?

It is true that no one is really sure whether they'd actually work but then they've got very very big computers working this out. Of course only way to be sure is to test them but thats not allowed anymore....except if you're France.


On the original question - didn't get to as my car CV joint went bang half way to my g/f's house the night before so was stuck 200 miles away. Suspect there's a lot of other lib dem (got nothing but them and tory) voters who'd be a bit cheesed off with the current setup.
