Toxic suggestion

Have your say

I VIEWED with interest BBC Question Time (1 February) which on Thursday night came from Lancaster.

When the issue of the dumping of nuclear waste was raised an audience member recommended, to peals of laughter from audience and panellists alike, that this be dumped in Scotland and the nation “given” its independence.

Replace the word “Scotland” with “England”, or anywhere else for that matter, and one can just imagine the outcry.

And dare I say it, the dumping of nuclear waste in Scotland could become a reality should we spurn the opportunity of independence for our nation ­offered by the 2014 referendum.
