A loss of security

At this late stage, the issue of our national security systems has still not been addressed in the debate about independence. We live in a dangerous world; we have experienced Lockerbie and the attack at Glasgow ­Airport.

Security intelligence ­depends on completely integrated systems, yet we blithely talk of splitting off from the rest of the UK without thinking of the appalling conflicts on the world stage and the threat they pose to us.

An independent Scotland would lose so much more than it would gain.
