I just stumbled across this bit of news;
Which has got me thinking and posing the question; If Scotland votes YES in a referendum why does it automatically mean a future Scottish Parliament would choose to make storing/hosting nuclear weapons in Scotland illegal? The same could be said for anything which is a policy of the SNP but not necessarily other Scottish political parties.
My main line of thought is that a new Scottish government would be formed and just because the SNP have helped bring about independence it does not automatically follow that they would win enough seats in a subsequent Scottish Parliament to enact all their polices. Is that a fair comment?
One could argue that articles like that BBC one probably don't do the Independence lobby many favours as it reinforces the view that an independent Scoitland would be an SNP utopia which would probably put some north of the border off voting YES.
From all that I have read Scotland would do well to become independent; as in reality independence is a divorce from Westminster not the rest of Britain or the British people as a whole.
