If there was a danger of it going off course I`m surprised that they even fired it!🤔😲💥

`A defence source close to the Mr Shapps insisted the Trident "could absolutely fire in a real world situation" if it needed to.

"The issue that occurred during the test was specific to the event and would not have occurred during a live armed fire," the source said.`


What exactly does that mean? If they know it `could absolutely fire in a real world situation` why bother with a test?

If it was anyone else outside the Tory party saying it was just an anomaly, I`d be inclined to believe them... But especially cause its Shapps saying it, I`m even more doubtful that it works as it should...

Maybe the issue that was `specific to the event` was that they asked Shapps to press the button and he f***ed up!
