On Trident:

To say she would scrap it because she wouldn't use it, as Caron did, is sentimentalist mush. She and those with the same policy have no right to deny future generations the opportunity to use it because they wouldn't use it. She doesn't have a crystal ball and that is no way to come up with a long term policy.

However, Nick's hard headed argument that he doesn't believe that the cost is in the best interests of future generations at least has the merit of having some cost benefit analysis. It may be right and it may be wrong, only the future will tell, but at least future generations will know that whatever happens it wasn't soft headed thinking that got them in to the position they are in, whatever it is.
