I gather from a newspaper report today that the UK government has decreed (in its usual self-effacing manner) that an independent Scotland would be 'banned' from possessing nuclear weapons. So let's recap on what we now know -
1) Nuclear weapons will be forbidden in an independent Scotland.
2) Nuclear weapons will be compulsory in a non-independent Scotland.
So what on earth is an anti-nuclear weapons country like Scotland supposed to do in its forthcoming referendum on independence? I think I speak on behalf of all of us in begging the (admittedly brilliant) UK government strategists to stop torturing us with these impossible dilemmas.
