Britain’s aircraft carrier programme faces further spiralling costs and the project remains a “high risk”, MPs have warned.

As we go to the polls in just over a year's time, let us not forget that voting No is an endorsement of this kind of shambles. Time to bring our government home.

Nemo me impune lacessit: defending an independent Scotland

Nemo me impune lacessit: defending an independent Scotland | SayYes2Scotland | Scoop.it
Of course an independent Scotland would be able to defend itself. It is silly to pretend otherwise.

Jim Arnott's insight:

The motto of the Black Watch: Nemo me impune lacessit.

 

From my latin schoolboy days the Scottish translation is: "Wha' dare meddle wi me"

 

The Unionists could do well to understand this Scottish translation.

 

Yes Scotland should, like the Black Watch, adopt this as their motto.

Hammond is talking nonsense or he is just a plain liar.First at present the British Navy,have had ships built in Korea,and yes I know they are for the Royal Fleet Auxiliary,which is that part of the fleet being staffed by Merchant Seamen,and these ships carry supplies for the rest of the fleet including warheads. So the part about not building in Scotland has precedent as the RN have also use Irish Free State yards for building ships.Nothing stops them from ordering ships from Scotland,except petty minded childishness and of course a great scare story for fools.
The next part about him criticising a Scottish Defence Force,and asking how we will build our Army,Navy and air-force,its none of his business for if we do manage to become independent then we would be telling our strategy to a foreign power and that is really stupid,Oh how the Westminster party has managed to con a lot of people into demanding how we would survive an attack from outside our borders.Who is going to attack us? for the past thousand years its only been England that has attacked us,is he hinting at something?

Jim Arnott's insight:

Lt's have more of these unionist recruiting sergeants for the cause of independence for Scotland. They are certainly driving more and more Scots to consider voting Yes in next year's referendum.

"Hammond somehow made it over the border to Scotland last Thursday where he made a clumsy attempt to influence the independence debate."
