Allowing British Crown immunity from giving Scotland, the SNP and in this case Alex Salmond and for us who live in Scotland ‘Information on the state of Trident is wrong. In a democracy the safety of these WMD’s on OUR LAND in Scotland are by all means, and through one Whistleblower named ‘Able Seaman William McNeilly’ <Click) tell us Trident is BREAKING DOWN. Should there be an accident in Faslane Naval Base it would be bad, I will leave an image below. Alex is demanding disclosure of ALL issues and repairs needing done to these WMD’s because he knows they are so bad it could cause a bad accident in Scotland. The video below shows us how Westminster and it’s speaker are so blind and uncaring toward Scotland is so unjust. I can understand “Sure fix them” But on the other hand I say as Scotland says as one (Almost) “When fixed go place them on the Themes behind Westminster!” I know, it won’t happen and hope Trident is placed where if there were an accident it would be low is casualties and it’s as safe as can be, there must be land somewhere on the British Isles? surely? Last I heard Wales were seemingly happy to take Trident <Click) and the something like £50M that comes with keeping them as far away from London as possible. There are many debates all in one here, but lets watch the videos and then take it from there should we want to debate this. The speaker at the end says “We here in London are as worried about a Nuclear accident as Scotland are” Well that is easy for the speaker in Westminster to say living in Lower London! Lets slowly allow ‘2020 Vision to be allowed to progress, then free Scotland from all this’ Funny as it is #2020 #Vision I made up is now being used by others, THIS IS OK TO SHARE 😀 So here today 😀 At near 7am I declare on Sunday 28th of June 2015, so when the MSM Steal my saying, WE KNOW I SAID IT FIRST!! 😀 Alex TOLD Westminster under no uncertain terms “We in Scotland will NOT allow Trident in our Land for all of time” Or words to that effect 😉 In laymen’s terms “We will not tolerate Nuclear bombs in Scotland for much longer”
So this quickly I will say bring into play the Scottish UDI – Unilateral Declaration of Independence <Click) Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) is a formal process leading to the establishment of a new state by a sub-national entity which declares itself independent and sovereign without a formal agreement with the national state from which it is seceding. The term was first used when Rhodesia declared independence in 1965 from the United Kingdom (UK) without an agreement with the UK.

THIS VIDEO I CAN’T EMBED SO HERE IS DIRECT LINK TO PETER’S VIDEO
https://youtu.be/HDXDzJRb1L4 Sorry, you must copy and paste this 😦
With the UTMOST respect and friendship. Sadly Peter has set his page settings to ‘View only’ so nobody can become knowledge in this debate, so please respect Peter and link into his page. I respect you Peter by if Scotland is to become free, as you want it to also, why then block information that was widely available to all, free, on TV? I respect you, you are a very good man, so I had to say this. It’s backwards and it’s not just you my friend. People share but don’t allow further sharing, meaning Scottish people who don’t always get all the news but we all share so we can, end up not getting the full story 😦 I am just saying Peter and I mean no offence my friend. So I hope I can share the video here with a link? Please? So I can inform myself and others can inform themselves and their friends…Thanks man!! #Solidarity So I can share this above and it’s KINDA what Alex was saying….
Alex Salmond: Maintaining the Trident Ballistic Submarine System Is Irrational
VIDEO Via Brookings Institution on You Tube (Way back in 2013)
A Royal Navy submariner who blew the whistle on a catalogue of alleged security failings around the Trident nuclear programme has said he will hand himself in to police. We do not have to believe Able Seaman William McNeilly to be anxious about the picture he paints of the problems with UK fleet of nuclear submarines Trident whistleblower needs to be listened to, even if he is exaggerating
Able Seaman William McNeilly, 25, a newly qualified engineer, claimed that Britain’s nuclear deterrent was a “disaster waiting to happen” in a report detailing 30 alleged safety and security breaches, including a collision between HMS Vanguard and a French submarine during which a senior officer thought: “We’re all going to die.”
McNeilly wrote that a chronic shortage of personnel meant that it was “a matter of time before we’re infiltrated by a psychopath or a terrorist; with this amount of people getting pushed through”. The police and the navy launched a hunt for McNeilly after he failed to report back for work last week at the Faslane submarine base on the Clyde. But on Monday morning he said he would hand himself over to the authorities despite facing a possible prosecution under the Official Secrets Act 1989
Speaking to the BBC, McNeilly said: “I’m not hiding from arrest; I will be back in the UK in the next few days and I will hand myself in to the police. Prison – such a nice reward for sacrificing everything to warn the public and government. Unfortunately that’s the world we live in. I know it’s a lot to sacrifice and it is a hard road to walk down, but other people need to start coming forward.” In the 19-page report, titled The Secret Nuclear Threat and published online alongside a picture of his UK passport and Royal Navy identity card, McNeilly said he wanted “to break down the false images of a perfect system that most people envisage exists”.
He described bags going unchecked and said it was “harder getting into most nightclubs” than into control rooms, with broken pin code systems and guards failing to check passes. “All it takes is someone to bring a bomb on board to commit the worst terrorist attack the UK and the world has ever seen,” he wrote. McNeilly, who said he was on patrol with HMS Victorious from January to April, accused navy bosses of covering up a collision between HMS Vanguard and a French submarine in the Atlantic Ocean in February 2009.
At the time Ministry of Defence officials played down the incident and said the Vanguard had sustained only “scrapes”. But McNeilly said a navy chief who was on board at the time told him afterwards: “We thought, this is it – we’re all going to die.” The more senior submariner allegedly told McNeilly that the French vessel “took a massive chunk out of the front of HMS Vanguard” and grazed the side of the boat. Bottles of high-pressured air came loose in the collision, he claimed, meaning the British submarine had to return slowly to Faslane to prevent them from exploding. He also raised concerns about a number of his fellow seamen, including one whose hobbies he claimed were killing small animals and watching extreme pornography. Another submariner, whom he named only as “Pole”, had threatened to kill two fellow navy personnel and was routinely aggressive, McNeilly claimed.
He described how HMS Vanguard’s missile compartment doubled up as a gym, leading to potentially disastrous mishaps when seamen dropped weights near the boat’s missile firing system. McNeilly said he raised these and other concerns through the chain of command on multiple occasions, but that “not once did someone even attempt to make a change”.
The whistleblower also revealed that there had allegedly been a fire in the missile compartment when the boatwas in harbour. He claimed the blaze was sparked by overheated cables setting light to stacks of toilet roll. “The chief said if it had been at sea there would’ve been about 50 dead bodies on three deck because of the amount of people struggling to find an emergency breathing system,” he claimed. McNeilly said his decision to go public was “the easiest yet most painful” of his life, and that he had “sacrificed everything” to make the claims. He wrote that he was hopeful of receiving a pardon from David Cameron when he handed himself in to the police. “I also believe it’s in the prime minister’s best interests to release me. Prosecuting someone for alerting the people and the government to a major threat isn’t a good image for any government,” he added.
Angus Robertson, the Scottish National party leader in Westminster, described the claims as extremely concerning and said the allegations add weight to calls to scrap Trident altogether. He said: “It reads as a nightmare catalogue of serious safety breaches aboard and alongside these nuclear-armed submarines … Shortages of all types of crew on these submarines has been well-documented and the description of personnel in extremely stressful situations must be alarming given the huge responsibility some of these sailors are given.
“Failure to follow standard safety procedures is unacceptable in any workplace but on a Vanguard submarine on patrol it could result in extreme tragedy not just for those on board but indeed for the entire planet.” A Royal Navy spokeswoman said on Monday that the service disagreed with McNeilly’s assessment, describing the report as containing “a number of subjective and unsubstantiated personal views”.
The spokeswoman said it was right for the allegations to be investigated but that the publishing of the report did not pose a security risk. She added: “The Royal Navy takes security and nuclear safety extremely seriously and we are fully investigating both the issue of the unauthorised release of this document and its contents. “The naval service operates its submarine fleet under the most stringent safety regime and submarines do not go to sea unless they are completely safe to do so.”
Here is a good article to back up, with better knowledge I am saying: http://bellacaledonia.org.uk/2014/10/12/the-case-for-scotland-making-a-unilateral-declaration-of-independence-in-may-2015/
I heard of a possible Unilateral Declaration of Scottish Independence from the late Robin Cook MP in 1983 at the Labour Party Conference in Perth City Hall. I asked Robin about Labour’s prospects at the election. We will win Scotland, we agreed but it looked like another Thatcher victory due to English dominance of seat numbers.
He then said ‘How can we let the Scottish people suffer another Tory government hell-bent on union destruction and driving down living standards? I am seriously considering leading all Scottish Labour MP’s over the burning bridge to join with the SNP and declare UDI’
