It seems that a malfunction occurred with a British nuclear missile, a Trident II DS missile fired from a nuclear submarine off the coast of Florida in June last year. The missile, which was unarmed at the time, veered in the wrong direction towards America. That obviously could have set off a global nuclear war.  Downing Street covered the disaster up, until now, so that a House of Commons vote on the missile system would not be disrupted. Ah, corruption, it’s everywhere.
Apart from that, it makes one wonder, if push comes to shove, would the nukes even work, especially if spare parts are needed from China?
