All our talk of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles has put reader Anton Kuruc in mind of a great clip from Yes, Prime Minister:

President Obama isn’t the first leader to consider how to fund a nuclear deterrent, balance defence capability upgrades and fix social and economic policy with the savings. Prime Minister Jim Hacker considered these issues years ago in great depth with his Chief Scientific Adviser.

Thanks Anton. I think we all needed that.
