One of the first tasks that the civil service will have ensured that David Cameron carries out – within minutes of his return from Buckingham Palace – is re-writing the four letters that are always carried, one in each safe of Britain’s four Trident armed nuclear submarines.
The letters are there in case the Prime Minister is obliterated in a nuclear strike and is no longer able to give the order to enable the Commanders to fire back at our attacker.
I have been pondering what David Cameron might have said in his letters. What decision he would have come to, what order he would issue, knowing that it will only be acted upon on his death by nuclear Armageddon.
My best bet is:
“Track down that little woofter Clegg and ask him if he still wants to abolish Trident. He’s next”
A regretably vaporised David Cameron.
What do you think he’s written?
