Jim Arnott's insight:

The people of Scotland deserve an explanation of the MOD even considering such a plan.

 

Vote Yes in the 2014 Referendum on independence for Scotland.

Nemo me impune lacessit: defending an independent Scotland

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

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?

Labour’s shadow Scottish Secretary Margaret Curran is quoted in the Herald today presenting the award of £300m of contracts for the navy’s innovative new aircraft-free aircraft carriers as a benefit of the Union, and continuing the well-worn scare story that the Clyde and Rosyth shipyards would close in an independent Scotland.

Alex Salmond accused of 'talking down' Royal Navy

Alex Salmond accused of 'talking down' Royal Navy | Unionist Shenanigans | Scoop.it
Alex Salmond has faced accusations of talking down the Royal Navy after claiming that Britain’s maritime defence is based on “prestige, not performance.”

Distortion courtesy of Simon Johnson.  Deflection courtesy of Gemma Doyle. They share credit for dishonesty.

And Alex Salmond's perfectly valid point about the dearth of surface vessels in Scotland remains unanswered as the British nationalists hide behind service personnel they aren't fit to be in the same room with.
