I'm no Labour fan, but I really don't get what the big deal is here, his position seems perfectly clear.

He categorically dismisses the option of a first strike (in line with the Tory policy and just about everyone else).

He says having to use a second strike would be disastrous, but obviously (confirmed by the fact they are renewing Trident) it isn't something that they can rule out. If they did publically rule it out, it wouldn't be a deterrent.

Am I missing something?

Tories are AIDS.

Contagious stupidity caused by selective breeding.

The problem with MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) is that it requires all leaders of nuclear armed nations to be sane.

Hands up who is confident our leaders are sane. Hmm ... I don't see many hands.

Corbyn has the right attitude ie keep the deterrent (labour manifesto) but NEVER allow first use and accept that second use would be an absolute disaster but can't rule it out.

He has softened his position but anyway I would sooner have a PM who can defend us from the type of terrorism that the uk has seen 3 times in the last year than the type of nuclear attack that would wipe out the entire world

The current PM hasn't defended the UK very well from "the type of terrorism that the uk has seen 3 times in the last year." Indeed, you could say her actions in cutting police and Border Force have contributed to those attacks.

And Corbyn's pledge to increase police numbers is preferrable to May's pledge to reduce civil liberties.

Totally agree. I watched an interview with the former chief of the Met saying that the Tories claims about increased officers were just outright lies.

It's amusing that the Anti-Corbyn brigade are quibbling about his readiness to protect us from a threat which is thankfully very slim and still quite distant, when the Tory government has shown it is unable to defend us from the type of threat that we seem to have on a monthly basis.

Hahha tory boy you're an idiot. You support a government that can't even protect us from the extremist attacks we see every month but you criticise Corbyn for wanting dialogue and for condemning ALL violence instead of just the violence that you morons approve of. I expect you think he is a coward for not wanting to chase and kill foxes too. And one minute you complain about anti semitism and the next you bang on about kids being led into mosques. You cant keep a coherent argument from one sentence to another, Whatever you get paid to come on and support the tories now they are worried it isn't enough.

More importantly, she is one of the few European leaders who is far too weak and scared to stand up to Trump. He even holds his hand for fuxake! Corbyn would definitely make his feelings known about the toddler in the Whitehouse.
