Stars in their eyes
I wasn't needing convincing abour replacing Trident, but if I was then CND's enlistment of some of the blandest names in British music probably would have convinced me.
Thom Yorke, Damon Albarn, Razorlight, Snow Patrol, Bloc Party, Franz Ferdinand, Super Furry Animals and Supergrass all say "ban the bomb".
Who needs the bomb any way, we could deter our enemies by threatening to bombard them with Snow Patrol at full volume on a perpetual loop.
And what a clinching argument: the chiefs of staff say we need a strategic deterrent, but Razorlight say we don't. Give me strength.
I wouldn't trust Razorlight's judgement on choosing a breakfast cereal let alone whether to invest in a new generation of nuclear weapons.
