[war] British Nukes were protected by Bike Locks‘To arm the weapons you just open a panel held by two captive screws – like a battery cover on a radio – using a thumbnail or a coin. Inside are the arming switch and a series of dials which you can turn with an Allen key to select high yield or low yield, air burst or groundburst and other parameters. The Bomb is actually armed by inserting a bicycle lock key into the arming switch and turning it through 90 degrees.’ [via Grayblog]

Gosh, it is frightening to think that the socialists now have the codes for the bomb! I do hope they have to get approval from the House of Lords, the Queen and Prince Philip before they can fire any nuke.
