Opposition to Trident

MoD officials warn that London would demand billions in compensation from Edinburgh to fund the moving of Britain’s nuclear deterrent to England

A spokesman for Alex Salmond, Scottish first minister, said: 

“The UK government should have a care, and stop this sabre rattling. The vast majority of MSPs [members of the Scottish parliament], as well as the churches, trade unions, and civic society across the nation totally oppose Trident nuclear weapons being based in Scotland – and in the last Westminster parliament a majority of Scottish MPs opposed the renewal of Trident.”
