Theresa May-she hid an incident during a test of a nuclear missile ? It is, in any event, the notice of opposition the british, who demands explanations after the maneuver of a submarine last July. According to the information of the Sunday Times (English), which cites a source within the navy, a missile Trident tested off the coast of Florida would have taken the wrong direction, toward the american continent.
It was the first shooting test in four years of a nuclear missile british, made shortly before the accession of Theresa May at the head of the government. But, once in office, the First minister failed to mention this incident, accuses the newspaper, as she argued in the face to the deputies for the renewal of the program of submarines Trident.
the Trident is both the name of the program of nuclear deterrence in uk, which is based on four submarines, and the name of the missiles. The project weighs in at 40 billion pounds ($ 46.2 billion euros). Asked four times on this silence in an interview with the BBC (English), Sunday, Theresa May has never responded directly.
When I delivered this speech to the House of commons, we were talking about to renew or not to renew our program is Trident, we were not talking about whether we need to or not Trident missiles.Theresa May, the First minister of the united kingdom
The Trident missiles have been tested only five times by the british sailors since 2000, specifies the Times, because each gear will cost 17 million pounds. In a joint press release, the services of the First minister and the ministry of Defence confirmed that the Royal Navy had conducted a routine test in June from the HMS Revenge, without mentioning the outcome of the shot.
After this investigation of the log, the leader of the labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn and his finance manager John McDonnell has called for a debate. Both had voted against the renewal of the deterrent program in July. The latter considers that “the supporters and opponents of the Trident would have had to be informed to the Parliament”.
