Armed MoD police begin patrolling 'civilian Scotland'
A few weeks ago MOD police representatives at aarevealed small meeting in Argyll revealed plans to increase MOD police presence near Faslane and Coulport, replacing the current Police Scotland presence. Alarming statements were made about taking on some of the duties of the local police (local police who are unarmed and have been trained to deal sensitively with domestic policing). Locals have been encouraged to report anyone seen photographing submarines, although this is not a crime. MOD police stayed individuals doing so will be put into their system. Cars are being randomly stopped on local roads. Questions are now being asked about how we have arrived at a situation where armed police taking orders from London are likely to be acting in place of Scottish police taking instruction from Holyrood. http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/15009201.Armed_MoD_police_begin_patrolling___39_civilian_Scotland__39_/?ref=twtrec
Nuclear waste: Firm refusal needed, Rhun ap Iorwerth AM says - BBC News
"I agree with Scotland's policy, and that is that nuclear waste should be stored over ground where it's easy to monitor, on thenuclear station site. If anything goes wrong after nuclear waste is buried, it's much harder to know what's happening and todo anything about it." While Wales is trying to decide whether to host nuclear waste they look to us for a lead.What a pity the policy, correctly stayed in this article, is not adhered to. In actual fact nuclear waste is shipped the length and breadth of our country on trains every week, in direct contravention of this policy. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-38532481
