Church of Scotland leaders have applauded members of the Scottish Parliament for voting to end the Trident nuclear weapons programme, in a debate held on Tuesday 3 November.
Jeremy Corbyn has used a speech at the annual CND Hiroshima commemoration in London to launch a plan for a Defence Diversification Agency.
The Kirk Church and Society Council convenor has renewed her opposition to the 'immoral' Trident nuclear weapons system, currently based in Scotland.
While I’ve been out campaigning for the Scrap Trident Coalition, a fairly commonly voiced objection to the elimination of nuclear weapons from Scotland is that; “It’ll cost jobs at Faslane.”
Church leaders in Britain have been urged to “be more courageous and prophetic in challenging Trident replacement” on moral grounds.
