While the poor get poorer and die on the streets, we must keep that special relationship alive.

The UK has to renew its submarine-borne Trident nuclear weapons system if London wants to maintain its “special relationship” with Washington, US Defense Secretary Ash Carter said.
It’s the nuclear subs that allow Britain to “continue to play that outsized role on the global stage that it does because of its moral standing and its historical standing,” Carter was cited as saying by the BBC.

“It’s important that the military power matches that standing and so we’re very supportive of it,” he said.
