Trident and foreign aid both cost billions per year. Improved anti-terrorist security can be done for much less? A lot of it is about changes in attitudes, safety procedures, regulations that need improving in any case. Applying existing laws would help, less tolerance of organised crime, illegal immigration, human trafikking etc. would create a less chaotic situation.

You cannot do a proper job on the cheap. That is already happening - although steps have been taken to upgrade the situation. Small input = small output. To do the job efficiently the budget and training etc etc etc needs doubling throughout all departments. That's not small beer money. Fiddling the petty cash won't cut it. So - what's it to be -. Trident or Foreign Aid. We have possible 20,000 need keeping an eye on. France has 70,000. Who's gonna win??

Seeing as you press the question, if there are any more islamic state type atrocities in the UK, and if funding is that hard to find,  I would choose, (as temporary measure)* to shift money from foreign aid to intelligence and defence. It's still about attitudes as well as about money.

* like income tax.

At least that would be a start. It's all about priorities and 'costs' and who decides which and when and where. The 'cake' is only ever one size and can only be sliced so many times before you get crumbs. I would decrease our Foreign Aid by 0.02 percent which should help establish a more robust and active intelligence and police service - for the use of. And i would start by removing aid to countries like North Korea and countries that can afford space programmes etc. Evil or Very Mad
