The UK is currently being denied essential defence equipment by the United States administration. As a result, UK plans to buy squadrons of US Joint Strike Fighters could be cancelled, with European Typhoons being purchased instead.
This was suggested in another parliamentary debate on Monday, 4 July. It was pointed out that multilateral defence alliance, NATO, would suffer because of the US attitude.
If defence is slowly moving to multilateralism, shouldn't NATO have a view on nuclear weapons? The UK taxpayer seems to be meeting more than a fair share of the costs of Western defence.
