  • UKIP Policies : UK Defence Budget
    Source UK Defence Statistics Our defence expenditure in 2005 was 2 3 of the UK s GDP² France 2 5 Germany 1 4 Italy 1 8 USA 3 8 NATO Europe 1 7 In short Britain is spending head for head less than France and much less than the US We cannot do defence on the cheap The budget will have to rise substantially to meet the commitments we already have prepare for others and to look after those who serve About 50 of the existing defence budget goes on R D and purchase of equipment ³ The problem addressed further in the section on Procurement is that we have not been getting value for money Witness the reduction in front line forces from 1997 to 2006 despite a slowly rising defence budget The Navy went down from 49 destroyers and frigates in 1990 to 25 in 2007 and from 12 submarines to 9 the Army reduced from 55 to 36 Infantry battalions in the same period the Air Force lost 8 out of 19 strike attack reconnaissance squadrons and 5 out of 9 air defence squadrons Soldiers receiving P45s on the battlefront is not easily forgiven As a result the strains on our overstretched armed forces have become so clear that even the Government was forced to acknowledge them In January 2007 the then Prime Minister talked of the need to renew the covenant between the Armed Forces Government and People which means increased expenditure on equipment personnel and the condition of our armed forces not in the short run but for the long run Tony Blair RUSI Journal 2007 UKIP believes that the Defence Budget must rise substantially to meet our present responsibilities but that if we learn to spend it smarter the rise can be kept within affordable limits I would be interested to hear both positive and negative views on UK Independence Party s UK Defence Budget policies in the comments below 1 responses to UKIP Policies UK Defence Budget rosie g Comment on UKIP Policies UK Defence Budget As I understand the UKIP policy on defence it simply means no change just more money Defence should mean defence not sorting out the world s problems as if we were some kind of international police force What happens in the world is none of our business except and unless it is a direct threat to our country that we cannot solve by other means I quote the billions spent on defending against the Warsaw Pact USSR which suddenly simply and mysteriously folded the threat proved to be no longer a threat Had we gone to war as we have done in Iraq and Afghanistan there would have been a nuclear holocaust and nobody would be here arguing on this forum War should always be a last resort answer but all too often in this world it is a first and only reaction to a problem I disagree with UKIP policy if you can call it a

  • UKIP Policies : UK Nuclear Deterrent
    of a nuclear state against a non nuclear state Quite simply there would be no alternative to giving in to whatever demands were being made For the foreseeable future only governments will have the ability to control nuclear weapons and to launch nuclear missiles Such governments are it has been well demonstrated deterred from their use by the immediate and certain prospect of their own destruction The important factor here is the certainty A deterrent has to be invulnerable and able to be launched under all and any circumstances The Vanguard class bomber submarines meet these requirements but will soon need replacing Day to day operationally they are independent although long term their Trident missile system s supply and refurbishment clearly depends on the US UKIP s policy is that the design of four new British built American armed bomber missile submarines should start immediately to preserve the skills base which might otherwise be lost through delay I would be interested to hear both positive and negative views on UK Independence Party s UK Nuclear Deterrent policies in the comments below 1 responses to UKIP Policies UK Nuclear Deterrent PETER J JONES Comment on NUCLEAR DETERENT ALTERNATIVE NUCLEAR DETERENT ALTERNATIVE THIS COMMENT IS BASED ON THE ASSUMPTION THAT USE OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS WILL NEVER ACTUALLY HAPPEN MEANING THAT THE TREMENDOUS CURRENT COSTS AND MASSIVE INFRASTRUCURE CURRENTLY ENVOLVED ARE COMPLETELY WASTED THE ROYAL NAVY RUNS THE UK NUCLEAR PROGRAM AND ALSO HAS A SECONDARY SUBMARINE NON NUCLEAR CRUISE MISSILE CAPABILITY IT IS SUGGESTED THAT TERMINATION OF THE NUCLEAR DETERANT WITH REPLACEMENT BY AN EXPANDED CRUISE MISSILE PROGRAM WOULD IN FACT HAVE ADEQUATE DETERENT EFFECTS TO A NUCLEAR THREAT A SECONDARY RESULT OF THE PLAN WOULD BE THE DETERENT EFFECT OF A LIMITED USE OF CRUISE MISSILES TO A NON NUCLEAR THREAT

  • UKIP Policies : Nuclear Energy
    Reactors of the Chernobyl type were of an inherently unstable design and confined to the former USSR but even so the Chernobyl accident would not have occurred had not the operators disabled the reactor s safety systems A new generation of light water reactors has been designed to be simpler to construct operate and maintain and they have inbuilt passive systems which make them many times safer than the early reactors Neither should nuclear plant be a focus for terrorist attack Such plant is well protected by security barriers and procedures and is heavily encased in a protective physical barrier that would be difficult to penetrate None of the hundreds of such reactors operating worldwide has yet been the subject of terrorist attack 11 6 To reverse the run down of our nuclear capability and know how UKIP would support British involvement in new nuclear power plant construction contracts in the UK Some public investment will be needed to finance the decommissioning of existing plants but this cost would be minimised through the building of replacements at the same site We would accelerate planning permission by means of suitable Acts of Parliament for the building of new reactors on existing nuclear sites with full local authority participation Decisions must be taken very soon on licences for new UK reactors ideally to commence building by 2012 as the massive civil engineering resources built up for the Olympic Games become available for other works 11 7 Revival of the nuclear power programme globally would be likely to drive up the price of uranium UKIP suggests that the UK should restart a fast breeder nuclear power development programme as a follow on to a thermal nuclear power programme with the aim of constructing commercial breeder reactors some ten years hence see Appendix C 11 8 Controlled nuclear fusion requires no expensive fuel has negligible need for nuclear waste disposal and produces no greenhouse gas emissions The rewards of achieving this on a commercial scale would be immense though difficult technical problems remain such as containing the plasma fusion material whilst conducting away heat and developing suitable materials that can stand neutron bombardment over a sustained period UKIP believes that although the technology of nuclear fusion should be pursued international collaboration to share the immense costs would be desirable and we accept that large scale industrial power generation may not be achieved for some decades and perhaps even generations 11 9 Figure 2 shows the proportion of different sources for generating electricity in the UK by 2020 as a result of implementing UKIP s energy policy There are many uncertainties in making such forecasts including the unknowable impact of future technologies but the thrust of those changes which we believe are necessary is clear much greater use of nuclear power much less use of gas for power generation an increase in the use of proven renewable sources in many forms and coal remaining important but with greater use of UK reserves Figure 2 Comparison

  • UKIP Policies : Wind Farms
    competitors If the economics of large scale wind generation were to change in the future we would expect investors to enter this market without public subsidy in which case UKIP would only allow large scale wind generation located offshore 10 7 We recognise that wind energy can be valuable in the context of microgeneration that is the small scale generation of electrical power by individuals organisations or businesses to meet their local needs particularly in areas remote from large scale power sources Microgeneration avoids the loss of energy that occurs during transmission in the national grid but it can not make a significant contribution to industrial needs 10 8 Whilst conservation and renewable energy sources are important they cannot presently come close to meeting our realistic energy requirement Although fossil fuel use will need to continue for various purposes into the foreseeable future we urgently need to start reducing our dependence on gas for electricity generation The decline of gas will leave a yawning energy gap in capacity which we must quickly fill 10 9 Our related policies on transport and regarding agriculture and fishing are contained in separate policy statements I would be interested to hear both positive and negative views on UK Independence Party s Wind farms policies in the comments below 1 responses to UKIP Policies Wind Farms Mrs Barbara Feather Comment on UKIP Policies Wind Farms A resident in the beautiful island of Anglesey i am devastated at the plans to build 1 500 wind turbines off shore ten miles off the coast of anglesey It will destroy our beautiful scenery and ruin the tourist industry Ihave been told that each windmill will be aslarge as Blackpool tower The windfarms along the Norh Wales coast are horrible eyesores and causingthe residents stress as they are killing
