  1. There isnae a button!
  2. So was I. The Yanks have no control over the targetting or operations of it once it's on a UK facility. I must admit, it frustrates me how little people know about the nuclear deterrent, yet they all have a misguided view of how it operates. Don't believe everything Wings over Scotland says!
  3. The warheads are wholly British and the delivery system,except for the build, has no non UK input.
  4. Pish. The Americans have no control over our Submarines.
  5. All the its in bold aren't true. ow exactly cold the Americans deny our Submarine weather and gravitational data? It doesn't come from them. I'm pretty sure all the people working in Coulport would be glad to hear that the US service the missiles, puts them all out of a job!
  6. No they're not.
  7. No they aren't.
  8. Hello bud. Eight of us heading over without any way of getting to the game. Some seats would be brilliant!

      Count yourselves in.


      Can you just post that quickly with your group total on the thread?

      That's how I'll be keeping track.

      It would be great if just you could transfer your group total to keep things as simple as possible.  Put in a short note with your TAMB username and "Bratislava bus" when making the transfer so I know that you've paid up.

      Departure time + location details will be forthcoming before the big day obviously.



  9. Park in the James watt dock marina. It's directly across the street from the ground. Or pull off at gibshill brae before the marina (at the arnold clark garage) and park the car on any of the streets there. All no more than five minutes walk. Or you can park on my drive for a tenner?!!!
  10. It does have a direct correlation with Faslane, thats where the majority of submarines are home ported. What would replace them to make this great employment utopia the SNP envisage?
  11. The phasing out of Nuclear power is a mental idea.
  12. If the SNP only went on a platform of no Nuclear missiles, they would maybe have more kudos. The plan for a Nuclear free Scotland, including Nuclear power, is mental. There's only four Submarines in the UK capable of carrying nuclear missiles, there are a further eight nuclear fast attack boats. The white paper stated it would have got rid of Scotlands share of them as well. Mental.
  13. Of course we can have non nuclear there. It just wouldn't make any sense. We don't have any non nuclear submarines at the moment, so there would be a substantial period of procurement and building, both of the Submarines and the infrastructure remodelling, which wouldn't be cheap, and would probably be vetoed for cost anyway. . As for surface vessels, theoretically we could easily use Faslane, but it wouldn't make any sense. it's on the wrong coast from the oil rigs for a start. With reference to the top part of your post, I totally agree that no means rule from London, but SNP is not exclusively Yes, which too many souls seems to think.
  14. By your definition the Anti Trident line is peddled about by all nationalists then? Thats just not true. It's a SNP and Scottish Labour Party line. You do know the majority of people in Scotland don't belong to any political party don't you? Many of us who voted Yes disagree with a lot of SNP policies, conversely, there will be no voters who disagree with a lot of Tory/Lib Dem/Labour/UKIP policies. The notion of independence isn't exclusively owned by the SNP you know.
