So a Trident nuclear weapons test failed a few months ago and this has only just come to light.
However, as far as I know, they want to replace the Trident system for something new anyway. Surely this failure is a good thing as now there is evidence that a new system is required as the old one is out of date. Nuclear tests fail all the time, it's always on the news.
However, there is lots of anger from many parties. Labour say that this is a "cover-up", but surely we would not want to release information about a weakness in our nuclear missiles.
Why is this failure important and in the news so much when we need to replace the system anyway? Surely this is just more reasons in why we need a replacement
