SCHNEWS IN BRIEF

To remind the newly-swept into power Scottish National Party (SNP) of it’s anti-Trident posturing,  the Trident submarine base in Faslane was blockaded for two hours on Tuesday (10th), in a joint action by activists from Trident Ploughshares and Faslane Peace Camp.

In a letter to the (absolutely-not-a-whitewash -this-time, honest guv’) Chilcot Enquiry, Michael Laurie said he had been given the directions to do so, despite Alastair Campbell having said the complete opposite to Chilcot last year. So, in a double shocker it turns out a New Labour spin doctor is a liar - who’d of thunk it?
