Set up and chaired Working Group on Scotland Without Nuclear Weapons.
Response to 2011 election survey:
Question 1. The Scottish Parliament should continue to call on the UK government not to go ahead sith the current proposal to replace Trident.
Question 2. The Scottish Parlaiment should call on the UK government to cease the deployment of Trident
Question 3. The Scottish Parliament should support a Nuclear Weapons Convention (a global ban on nuclear weapons).
Question 4. Are you for or against the construction of new nuclear power stations in Scotland ?
"There is no strategic, moral or economic arguments left to support the continued existence of the Trident weapon system."
"I am against new nuclear power stations in Scotland. I do not want to leave future generations with the problem of dealing with the radioactive waste for thousands of years and neither can we afford the costs of decommissioning. Scotland should instead invest in her fantastic potentail in offshore renewables and the 130,000 jobs that can be created."
