The fact is, as I wrote in a newspaper article this morning, North Korea does now have missile technology that is able to reach, as they put it, the whole of the United States and if they’re able to reach the whole of the United States they can reach Europe too. They can reach us too, so that is a real concern.
Notice any non-sequitors there?
45 minutes, anyone?
What a pillock!
Pyongyang is 5,385 miles from London. The Unha-3 has a range of 3,700 miles.
And even if Kim Jong-un could blast us out of our beds tomorrow, that isn’t an argument for spending billions on an unsuitable replacement for Trident.
