Trident fury: As Scotland is hit by public service cuts, UK government report calls for £130 billion nuclear replacement

An article in The Daily Record neatly demonstrates the opposition to the Trident programme and the Commission’s findings by SNP Politicians. The article further states that the cost of the Trident successor programme would be £130 billion, which is a massively inflated figure from what the report itself found, £20-30 billion over a period of twenty years.
