Nuclear friends

Have your say

Surely the people of Scotland are entitled to know the targets of the 200 nuclear warheads ­stationed at Faslane.

Is Russia – our Second World War ally – a target? Is China a target, even as we build trading links? Or is it Iran?

Until a few days ago this seemed quite likely as we’ve heard so much about Iran’s ­“illegal” nuclear programme. Now, we, the West, are relying on Iran to bolster Iraq’s faltering regime?

Even if all the above are targets, it still leaves an awful lot of missiles unaccounted for.

Does Westminster really have so many enemies on this little planet? If so, should they not be talking to them,

As they are clearly not, and seem determined to cling to the nuclear trigger, voting Yes would seem overnight to provide Scotland with 200 new friends overnight.
