Trident and the Scottish Parliament

Its good to see the protesters from the base at Faslane (where the new Trident will be based if we are foolish enough to let them) bringing the protest direct to the Scottish Parliament by climbing onto the roof and unfurling a banner.

We know that defence is not devolved, but our own Parliament is the place for us to make our feelings known in the first instance if we are to get the message across, and the message for Labour is ringing loud and clear. If you go ahead with this ill-reasoned and despised nuclear escalation then you will be its first the ballot booths of the Scottish elections on 3rd May.

And to those in the Labour Party who believe that they can fight this policy from within that party, that's like sh*gg*ng for purity, fighting for pacifism, or joining the Ku Klux Klan to fight racism. It simply can't be done
