Why are we spending billions of pounds on an independent nuclear deterrent when our national security is already secured

When asked about the EU referendum on the Andrew Marr Show Labour leadership contender Liz Kendall was enthusiastic about staying IN and told us "It's about our national security":  http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05yy2xm/the-andrew-marr-show-07062015

We know of course that the IN side will use fear to the max during the course of the campaign.

But they need to be careful about linking EU membership to continued national security.

Because the obvious question is going to be: why are we spending billions of pounds on an independent nuclear deterrent when our national security is already secured by membership of the EU?

It doesn't make sense.

We may as well save ourselves the cost and just coast along like the Germans do.

That's if we are staying IN of course.
