Trident Tragedy Storm in Teacup

A lot is being made of teh Trident misfire as a way to Bash Teresa May.

The key issue is why the information about the misfire wasn't given out before the debate on Trident oin the commons.

From what I can make of it, the misfire happened just before the debate. Given that such information relates to National Security and our Nuclear deterrent, the information is classified.

It takes weeks for various committees and such to debate the information and eventually declassify it such that the PM can release it to the defence select committee, let along the comkmons at large.

I suspect that the timing is such that the information was still classified at the time of the debate and the PM couldn't release it even if she wanted to.
