In these uncertain times, we must surely all give continued support for the UK remaining as one nation. An independent Scotland would be a weak enclave within the British Isles, with no defence facilities and a weak economy. It would surely be an easy target for any military invasion if the current crisis was to escalate. The SNP may object as much as it likes to Faslane and its nuclear submarine fleet but, if Nato has to keep all its member countries safe, then acceptance of this base is absolutely necessary. Can anyone really imagine the SNP taking control of such matters as national security? As ever, it would be completely out of its depth. We are certainly ‘better together’, Robert I G Scott via email.
