Does the First Minster need enhanced security

At a time when George Robertson, the Scottish born former Defence Minster in the previous labour administration in Westminster, questions the practical possibilities, or in his words “improbabilities” of a Scottish Defence force any better than Dad’s Army, when Salmond talks blithley of frigates and non-nuclear submarines.  To attack any EU fishermen who stray into Scottish waters if they fail to let him join the EU? We now hear that discussions are taking place and a senior police officer has been appointed to review the First Ministers protection. It has been suggested that as the Independence debate gets more heated, the First Ministers safety could not be guaranteed. Are we therefore to expect US Presidential style motorcades as a feature of the Independence hustings or is this a veiled and rather pathetic attempt to discredit the ‘Better Together’ Campaign. Certainly the future defence strategy ad budget seems drawn up on the back of a fag packet. Let us hope that the security issue is better thought out.

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.
