Contributing sentiments towards policy:

55% : MISSILES FROM THE UK: 'WE WILL NOT STAND BY'The Ministry of Defense confirmed that an "anomaly'' occurred but said "the test reaffirmed the effectiveness of the U.K.'s nuclear deterrent.''"As a matter of national security, we cannot provide further information on this, however, we are confident that the anomaly was event specific, and therefore there are no implications for the reliability of the wider Trident missile systems and stockpile,'' the ministry said.
52% : The Ministry of Defense confirmed that an "anomaly'' occurred but said "the test reaffirmed the effectiveness of the U.K.'s nuclear deterrent.''British lawmakers are seeking reassurances about the nation's nuclear deterrent after reports that a test of the system failed dramatically last month when an unarmed missile crashed into the sea near the submarine from which it was launched.
