Trident a red line issue for SNP

An article in the New Statesman argues that Trident is a red line issue for the SNP and so it won't be a bargaining chip after a Yes vote. James Maxwell writes -

"It is difficult to overstate the strength of the SNP's opposition to nuclear weapons. The current generation of SNP leaders grew up marching against Polaris in the 1970s and its replacement, Trident, in the 1980s. For nationalists, the presence of nuclear submarines on the Clyde symbolises both Scotland's lack of sovereignty and Westminster's disregard for Scottish interests. Unilateralism is in the party's blood."
