This 2015 music video from Scotland says about itself:
Keith Meisner – No Thanks Trident
Call me anything you like, call me naive
But I’m pretty sure it’s not missiles we need
I’m pretty sure, there will be no true peace
Until all these nuclear programmes cease
Scotland’s voice is loud and clear,
Try friendship, try hope over fear
Try compassion, try common sense
Try thinking that peace is the best defence
You threaten others you say to stop a threat
That’s the thing that I don’t get
So come gather round people and make a stand
And rid these things from our land
No thanks Trident….

The CND’s People Not Trident report claims that £205 billion would be wasted by replacing the nuclear weapons system, money CND says could be spent on “jobs, the NHS, homes, education and climate change.”
CND general secretary Kate Hudson said cuts announced in the Autumn Statement would hit the poorest in society but “over the last few months the government has lauded Trident spending as a sign of the economy’s vitality.
“It’s clear that something has gone very wrong. Are we saying as a society that we can’t afford a safety net for the poor or those on low incomes, but we can afford £205bn on a militarily useless weapon of mass destruction?”
The organisation says that the alternative proposals would “address the real problems society now faces.”
