Would careerist politicians allow nuclear weapons to remain in Scotland?

Would careerist politicians allow nuclear weapons to remain in Scotland? https://www.thenational.scot/news/18812281.weapons-must-not-allowed-remain/ Hamish Kirk  21 Oct 20,  “SET date to get Trident out of Scotland” said your headline on Tuesday. Like many others I pin my hopes for a nuclear-free Scotland on the government of a soon-to-be independent Scotland. I am sure that I am not alone.

Nor am I alone in having fears that some of us will do a deal to lease Faslane to London and Nato. Of late, ripples have started to appear in the political water, with commentators like Trevor Royle and Gerry Hassan suggesting that a deal could be done to lease Faslane to London and allow them to park their nuclear obscenities there indefinitely.

Nato has fans on our territory, and it would not take much to buy out some of the careerists I see exercising political power in Holyrood and Westminster.

Those who were very keen to endorse Nato will be at the front of the queue to sign a lease on Faslane. Let me ask two simple questions: “What is Nato for?” and “Why do we need nuclear weapons?”
