Jeremy Corbyn has confirmed that if he was Prime Minister he would not use nuclear weapons, regardless of what any future Labour Cabinet wanted.
Speaking to BBC’s Today Programme Corbyn said:
“We are not in the era of the Cold War any more; it finished a long time ago. We are having a review of defence policy as a whole. Trident will be included in that. My view is very, very clear. I put it very clearly out there during the leadership election”.
Corbyn also confirmed that he would not press the ‘nuclear button’ to defend the United Kingdom. He added that he wanted a nuclear weapons free world and this was his aim.
