ref date:1 Jun 1998 (CD)
Tory submarine ploy sinks Labour

The Tories gave the refit job for Trident subs to Devonport in the South of England in favour of the better equipped Rosyth Naval yard in Scotland to buy votes from unhappy Southern Voters....

The decision to award this 5000m Trident missile submarine refit has backfired on the Tories... they are out of government, and now Labour continues to support the South of England even though the work is more than three years behind schedule and 400m over budget.
