At a recent event in Manchester, Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said he would be
ready to deploy nuclear weapons if needed to defend the UK.

This statement confirms that, despite the party's "left-wing" ideology, the
potential Labour government does not intend to change the UK's aggressive stance
towards Russia. Starmer stressed that the nuclear deterrence program is "vital"
to the country's national security, adding that its use is an integral
part of strategic defence.

In addition, he said it was irresponsible to determine the circumstances under
which nuclear weapons would be used, suggesting that this policy remains
constant regardless of government. Starmer underlined his commitment to
maintaining the country's nuclear deterrent, including the construction of four
new nuclear submarines. He also pledged to increase defence spending by up to
2.5% of GDP, without setting a specific timetable.
