I am surprised that First Minister Alex Salmond thinks an independent Scotland would take over five years to get rid of nuclear submarines.

For what these vessels have cost, one would have thought that they would be able to sail down the Clyde and out of Scottish waters in but a few hours. Whilst any weapons of mass destruction that they were unable to take with them could be sent on by road the following day.
