Ex-Moderator voting Yes to get rid of Trident

Rt Rev Andrew McLellan, former Moderator of the Church of Scotland, has spoken out in favour of a Yes vote. He said "The worst thing in Scotland is Trident. September 18 is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to remove the worst thing in Scotland. Speaking against nuclear weapons is good, and praying for their abolition is good. But what will change everything is voting Yes in the referendum. Living in a Scotland free of nuclear weapons will make everything else better".

Rev Norman Shanks, a former Convenor of the Church and Nation Committee of the Church of Scotland, said "I shall be voting Yes on September 18 because I believe that, free from the constrains of Westminster, an independent Scottish government will be able to shape our nation's future in ways that are more sensitive to the needs, hopes and aspirations of Scotland's people".

Rev Peter Macdonald, leader of the Iona Community, said "I was a member of the Labour Party for 30 years. Now I no longer believe a Westminster government is capable of delivering the socially just and equitable society in which I want to live."
