Anarchy in the UK: Britain could lose its nuclear weapons

The sharp contradictions on the matter of modernization of nuclear submarines erupted between Labourist and the Conservatives could leave Britain without nuclear weapons. Daily Mail reports on this.

The bone of contention was what occurred in the British Parliament today, the construction of a new generation of submarines Trident, which are designed to replace the old fleet, which is in service since 1993.

The program cost is estimated at a colossal amount - 31 billion pounds.

At the same time, in order to save money, the components of future submarines are going to be imported and assembled in other countries, such as France which is to provide steel. This has already caused a storm of criticism from the Labourist Party.

Representatives of the party declared: "The Tories are so obsessed with the economy that do not even use the British Steel." If the MPs fail to agree, the new submarines will not be built, and the term of use of the old - will be expired. Thus, the UK risks being left without nuclear weapons.
