Corbyn pledges to scrap Trident "as soon as I can"

Memo to anyone in Copeland or Barrow in Furness who voted Labour because they believed the claims from local Labour candidates that official Labour policy is to keep Trident.

As Guido Fawkes reports here, the founder of the Glastonbury Festival, Michael Eavis says that  Jeremy Corbyn told him he will get rid of Trident “as soon as I can“.

Quotes via Somerset Live:
When asked about the Labour leader’s appearance, Michael Eavis said: “Wasn’t he fantastic?” 
Eavis says he asked Corbyn when he is going to be prime minister and that he replied: ‘In six months’. 
Eavis also said he asked Corbyn: “When are you going to get rid of Trident?”
“He said: ‘as soon as I can’.”
