A surreal conversation at Harrogate

I had a strange conversation with a guy yesterday who was handing out a flyer backing the amendment to the Trident motion. I asked him why he was backing a position that appears hostile to Trident but then keeps Trident at full strength for the next 20 years. He claimed the amendment had nothing to do with that and that it was a "disarm now" call.

So I pointed out what his amendment does and at that point he admitted he hadn't read the amendment, or indeed the motion. And he was rather shocked about what his amendment was proposing. You would have thought he should have known what he was supporting before he started to encourage others to do the same.
