Scotland’s SNP, potential allies of Labour in upcoming election wants to get rid of the UK’s nukes

The Trident base in Scotland

The Tories will issue their strongest warning about the dangers of a post-election pact between Labour and the Scottish National party when they accuse Ed Miliband of preparing to abandon Britain’s nuclear weapons as the price of securing power…

…The Tories’ decision to highlight a threat to Trident on Thursday is their latest high-stakes bid to boost support in England by warning of the dangers of a post-election deal between Labour and the SNP. Opinion polls, which suggest that the SNP could win more than 40 of Scotland’s 59 seats, indicate that the only path to Downing Street for Labour may involve a deal with the SNP. Miliband has ruled out a coalition with the SNP but has declined to rule out a more informal arrangement.

Fallon will say that Miliband will have to abandon the renewal of Trident after Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP first minister, made the scrapping of nuclear weapons a red line in any coalition negotiations. The defence secretary will say: “The SNP’s childlike worldview would sacrifice the long-term security of the UK and play into the hands of our enemies. The nuclear deterrent protects all of Britain and the SNP represents a separatist threat that would dangerously weaken our collective defence…

WTF is wrong with Scotland? The people sound collectively insane.  Don’t they read the news? About the new and more aggressive Russia?

One theory: A large fraction of the more intelligent people left long ago.

  • And somewhere in Kremlin Comrade Putin nods approvingly.

    Adam Smith, James Hutton, Joseph Black, Robert Burns…that’s just one generation of immortal Scotsmen:

    How did they go from that all the way down to Alex Salmond & Nicola Sturgeon? I’ll go with your theory, the cream of the crop left for North America & Australia generations ago leaving the dregs behind, and the dregs need a socialist nanny to look after them.

      Quite true but I’d be happy to return now and then and do my duty to to elevate the gene pool.

        Not me. Three of grandparents were from Scotland, but Canada seems a lot better.

      And a hundred years ago there was Alexander Fleming, Ronald Ross and William Ramsay, among other noteworthy Scottish scientists.

    I knew something was terribly wrong when the Scottish government released the Lockerbie bomber on “compassionate grounds.”

      Extreme leftism has set in. No idea why.

    Sir Humphrey: [talking about nuclear fallout shelters] Well, you have the weapons; you must have the shelters.

    Hacker: I sometimes wonder why we need the weapons.

    Sir Humphrey: Minister! You’re not a unilateralist?

    Hacker: I sometimes wonder, you know.

    Sir Humphrey: Well, then, you must resign from the government!

    Hacker: Ah, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I’m not that unilateralist! Anyway, the Americans will always protect us from the Russians, won’t they?

    Sir Humphrey: Russians? Who’s talking about the Russians?

    Hacker: Well, the independent deterrent.

    Sir Humphrey: It’s to protect us against the French!

    Hacker: The French?! But that’s astounding!

    Sir Humphrey: Why?

    Hacker: Well they’re our allies, our partners.

    Sir Humphrey: Well, they are now, but they’ve been our enemies for the most of the past 900 years. If they’ve got the bomb, we must have the bomb!

    Hacker: If it’s for the French, of course, that’s different. Makes a lot of sense.

    Sir Humphrey: Yes. Can’t trust the Frogs.

    Hacker: You can say that again!

    I wonder if Labour and the SNP want to donate them all to Iran, Hezbollah, Hamas and the PLO/Fatah?
