Reacting to Gordon Brown's speech today launching the government's new national security strategy, Greenpeace campaigner Louise Edge said:

"It's obviously good news that Brown seems to be adopting a joined up approach to the real security issues facing the UK public.

"But he simply can't square his commitment to freeing the world from nuclear weapons with last year's decision to renew Trident.

"And he's living in cloud cuckoo land if he thinks building more nuclear power stations around the world will do anything other than increase the risk of more countries getting hold of the keys to build their own nuclear weapons."
