Does dim lle i Arfau o ddinistr enbyd yng Nghymru. Dylai Llywodraeth Cymru ddatgan nad oes croeso i Trident yng Nghymru --- / --- Wales’ First Minister, Carwyn Jones, said that the UK’s Nuclear Fleet (Trident) would be more than welcome to come to Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire. Wales should not be home to WMDs. The Welsh Government should state uncategorically that there is no place for Trident in Wales.

      Dyfyniad o lythyr gan Dr John Cox / An excerpt from a letter by Dr John Cox:
      The potential impact of stationing Trident at Milford Haven has been explored by several studies and is recorded in a well-researched book "Uncharted Waters: The UK, nuclear weapons and the Scottish question" by Professors Walker and Chalmers. They said that Milford Haven was ruled out in '63 because of the proximity between the proposed base and the one oil refinery which had then just been opened and, specifically, "Milford Haven was rejected on safety grounds because of the dangers involved in handling and storing high explosives near major oil facilities".
      With regard to Trident they said: "These refineries would have to close if a new submarine base were located there". So whatever jobs might come to Milford Haven (for the people displaced in Scotland), would be offset by a far greater loss of jobs for existing workers at the refineries and gas terminals.

      Typical creeping politician. The oil refineries are probably closing ( not that he would tell people that ) so they want a replacement. The people will as always be under threat. LNG gas terminals, Oil storage and WMD's So how would he like to live in the middle of all that ? they have been scaring people with ' the war on terror ' rubbish for years. With this lot the place would most likely become a target. No put it in London ...

      Central government in England decides and he jumps without consulting the people at all.

      The existing base is 20 miles from me. I and others don't want it and neither should the Welsh.

      The U K government always find cash for their colonial wars and the nuclear industry but never to improve the infrastructure of the country.

      Carwyn Jones should make his mind up whether he represents the people of Wales or his masters in London.

      Do the National Assembly intend consulting us regarding this issue ?
