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.
