Report by Usman Ansari & Francis Beaufort

 

DARING AT PEARL 

A strong warning that the British must wake up to the value and vulnerability of their vital maritime sector was issued at a London event.

The recent UK vote for Brexit was instantly seen by the ruling Scottish Nationalist Party (SNP) as a brilliant opportunity to push for another Independence referendum. Should Scotland finally break away, it will have huge implications for the future of the sea-based nuclear deterrent force at HM Naval Base Clyde.

 

Former Prime Minister David Cameron is said to have banned contingency plans to switch the Trident submarines and Astute Class attack boats to England. These should now be developed under new P.M.
