Beyond the Noise: Will nuclear disarmament see Scotland out of Nato?

Beyond the Noise with David Jamieson is a weekly podcast with CommonSpace journalist David Jamieson, where he gets behind the 24/7 news cycle and gets to heart of issues, trying to find the substance behind the headlines.

IN the latest episode of Beyond the Noise Jamieson speaks to Bill Ramsay, chair of SNP Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (SNPCND) about their new document outlining a roadmap to nuclear disarmament in Scotland.

They discuss:

1:00 - What is the roadmap to nuclear disarmament being proposed by SNPCND?

10:18 – Is there a danger that Trident could remain in Scotland as part of negotiations with Nato and/or the remaining UK state?

12:41 – Are weapons systems like Trident becoming redundant? Might this have an impact on disarmament strategies?

25:04 – What is the wider international dynamic on the question of nuclear arms. Would Scotland have international friends when it comes to disarmament?
