Getting rid of Trident?

Could the story about a possible delay on the Trident replacement decision be the first step in the Government getting rid of it?

Three cheers if it is.

Personally I have moral objections to the UK having this weapon. But even without those a replacement would be hugely costly and there are plenty of senior military figures saying that it's not needed and that the money would be better spent in other ways.

It's probably fair to say that this is one of the policy areas causing the most disagreement between the Coalition partners. If some of those who have argued for the replacement are now becoming less sure, it's an excellent time for a bit more lobbying.
