The Nato Commitment on its head
The SNP has revealed that a motion on NATO membership, put forward by the party's leadership, will be considered at its conference in the autumn. The announcement comes amid serious questions over the future of Britain's Trident nuclear weapons system in the event of Scottish independence.
'In the first instance, Norway and Denmark were never nuclear weapons states – and it is rather a different matter for a country to reject nuclear weapons which form part of NATO's nuclear framework and then ask to become a member.'
'But more worryingly, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands have all called for the removal of US nuclear weapons from their countries and have been unable to extricate themselves from the nuclear obligations of NATO: thus remaining hosts to US tactical nukes. Their experience should provide a stark warning to the SNP of the realities of NATO membership.'
