‘Lightning rod’ Trident decisions should require Scottish consent, says MSP

Big decisions on defence, including the UK’s Trident nuclear deterrent,
should require the consent of Scottish politicians, a Labour shadow
minister has said. Katy Clark, MSP for West Scotland region, warned that
“lightning rod issues”, such as the nuclear submarines based at Faslane
on the Clyde and “unpopular wars such as Iraq”, had helped drive people
towards Scottish independence. She made the case for Scottish politicians
— either Scots MPs at Westminster or MSPs — to be given more say on
such matters in a new book, which calls for the option of “radical change
short of independence” to be included if there is a second referendum.
