SNP activists challenge leadership over NATO membership
Is the SNP about to drop one of its central policies? The Scottish Nationalists have long insisted that an independent Scotland would be a neutral, non-nuclear state, outside of the NATO Alliance.
But now the party leadership, in the shape of its Westminster Leader Angus Robertson, is putting down a motion for its Annual Conference in October, which would keep an independent Scotland within the Atlantic alliance, although still nuclear-free.
Not all party members agree, and the newly formed SNP CND is mobilising support to re-affirm the current policy of leaving NATO.
Mark D'Arcy asked its organiser is Bill Ramsay whether he thought they would win.
