Scottish independence, Englishman and SNP MP Angus Robertson says that Trident’s replacement is "immoral, outdated and grotesquely expensive", sit your arse down you buffoon, the UK is securing its United Nations Security Council seat


















Dear All

The SNP has cobbled together various unhappy groups who don’t like the British Government or its policies.

One of these groups is CND, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

The group was heavily supported by the Russians to destablise the West during the Cold War. 

Apparently our Russian cousins thought it was a good idea to try and get a nuclear free Britain.

Not a very good idea.

So, the SNP in need of ‘followers’ embraced CND by being anti Nuclear weapons, but in the big wide world outside their cliques, they could take the people of Scotland with them. Everyone is opposed to nuclear war but you can’t un-invent these weapons.

They are here and they are here to stay.  

The SNP or to be more precise Alex Salmond did a U turn on NATO after the SNP opposing it for 30 years, 30 years of getting it wrong, 30 years of being backward, NATO is the cornerstone of Western defence.

So, the U turn came, but rather than doing the right thing and supporting a pro Nuclear Faslane, Scotland’s ‘jolly fat man’ seriously bottled it, he dropped the ball, probably to keep the working class mugs who do the campaigning in the party in place.

The SNP halfway house is untenable, their defence plans are amateurish and they haven’t done any work preferring to ‘cut and paste’ parts of the UK’s defence reviews. You may have noticed that the SNP now campaign for one airbase, when previously they said they needed three, so what changed?

If they were wrong before, it shows they are incompetent and if they are “right” now it shows they are incompetent.

Eh?

Well, Scotland needs more than one airbase just like it needs more than one naval station, but the SNP just latched onto other’s work to fill a gap.

The gap in thinking was caused by not being arsed at Westminister or arsed as a party, Englishman Angus Robertson is the SNP defence spokesman, what a bang up job he didn’t do!

So, Trident needs to be replaced and the Coalition Government have committed to spending £3 billion on it before any final decision on a replacement for the ageing nuclear deterrent.

Will the new nuclear deterrent go ahead?

Yes, it will, there are many reasons but the seat on the United Nations Security Council is a prime one, all Security Council members are Nuclear.

£3 billion is a massive amount of money, but the Conservatives will push ahead with their plans for a like-for-like system.

There will be new submarines commissioned and they will be based in Scotland.

The SNP who are irrelevant in this debate have condemned the proposals for what it said would be "immoral, outdated and grotesquely expensive" weapons.

Grow up and act your age!

The Liberal Democrats who want to be all fuzzy to their supporters having lost so many oppose a like-for-like replacement.

With the Liberal Democrats trying to rebuild after Clegg’s folly, the two parties have agreed a stalemate where no final decision will be made until after the 2015 general election.

This isn’t about nuclear weapons; it’s about Westminster politics and re-election.

Conservative Defence Secretary Philip Hammond admitted that billions of pounds of spending will already have been committed by that stage.

And with Scottish independence dead, the SNP clueless on defence, the rest of the cash will go in at some future stage.

Hammond said:

"Some £3 billion has been earmarked for spending before the next election."

He also announced £79 million of investment in the next generation of submarines which will carry the nuclear deterrent.

Angus Robertson, SNP “leader” at Westminster and the party's defence spokesperson, said:

"The determination to spend £100 billion on Trident nuclear weapons that are designed to flatten Russia is perverse."

Is that right Angus?

Well, you just wear an extra woolly jumper if it gets cold and leave the defence of the UK to others with vast experience.

Go do some shopping at Harrods and visit the sights of London, you aren’t much use as a defence spokesman!

If the SNP had backed NATO and backed pro nuclear Faslane as a base for the nuclear submarine fleet they would have been seen as credible.

But Alex Salmond, unpopular Nicola Sturgeon and Angus Robertson aren’t strategic thinkers.

Mind you, it is a bit late to convert to nuclear since the SNP completely balls it up at this late stage, or is it?

The SNP can't go on living in denial, they need professional help on defence.
