The threat of nuclear war has subsided to such an extent that the United States and Russia are proposing to reduce their nuclear stockpiles by significant amounts. Yet Britain has announced that it still intends to increase sixfold the firepower of its nuclear deterrent.

Let us hope that we shall not have to wait another 30 years before we hear about this.
