Jeffrey Lewis on ‘Tuppenny Trident?’

Jeffrey Lewis, Director of the East Asia Nonproliferation Program at CNS, has published his thoughts on the UK’s Trident on, one of the leading blogs on disarmament, arms control and nonproliferation.

The post called ‘Tuppenny Trident’, features Lewis analysis on the impact of the looming UK budget crisis and the possibility of an independent Scotland on the UK’s nuclear weapons.

Lewis belies that “together, these two factors may achieve something very interesting: an NPT nuclear weapons-state undergoing disarmament. The first sign of serious strain is appearing among the Liberal Democrats, junior partners in the coalition government with the Tories. This is an interesting split, worthy of some consideration.”.
