China warning: UK nukes on standby for ‘land grab’ by Beijing – ‘We will use them’

CHINA has been sent a warning by defence insider Nicholas Drummond, who told that Britain’s nuclear weapons will be on standby for a “land grab” from Beijing – adding that “we will use them” in a dire situation.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace unveiled the Defence Command Paper this week, outlining the shape and size of the Armed Forces for the coming decade. The size of the Army was confirmed to be reduced by about 10,000 soldiers, as the UK focuses more investment in upgrading the Trident nuclear system and other hi-tech rearmament. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the changes would give the military the foundation to make them “all the more useful, all the more, I’m afraid, lethal, and effective around the world”
