Scotland could be dragged into an accelerating nuclear arms race

 George Kerevan: How Scotland could be dragged into an accelerating nuclear arms race. ON Saturday, All Under One Banner will hold a demonstration against nuclear weapons at the Faslane naval base on the Clyde, home to Britain’s nuclear submarine fleet.

This will be the first major anti-nuke demo since the outbreak of Covid-19. The protest by a group best known for its big independence marches is also backed by Scottish CND. This convergence of the national and nuclear issues is no accident.

The west’s debacle in Afghanistan has opened a dangerous new phase in global politics.
Any Scottish independence referendum will take place against a background of rising international tensions that must intrude in our domestic debate.
