Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
You can have a second strike capability by detecting a first strike before impact. How many countries could strike the UK undetected? Maybe the US using only B2s?

Of course this requires having a number of fixed and mobile land-based platforms on constant hairtrigger alert, which may not save all that much money.

I'm unsure how cruise missiles would work out for strategic warheads. I'm thinking they don't.
