‘I Will not press the button’

Have your say

Looks like the honeymoon’s over for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn now that he says he would not push the nuclear button.

Is he really telling us all that if we were threatened with nuclear warfare he would sit back and allow us all to fry without retaliation?

If that’s the case, providing we retain Trident which looks to be a reality, then Corbyn is dafter than I thought.

Further, the first duty of any leader of any country is to ensure the safety of its citizens.

Corbyn seems to be reneging on this duty or is it just me getting his interpretation of the nuclear button wrong?

Or, if in government, maybe he’d get the cabinet member with the longest finger to do the deed ?
