NEWS FROM THE MANNIN BRANCH CELTIC LEAGUE
A seventy-seven year old Glasgow pensioner, Brian Quail, proved you are never too old to make your mark when yesterday he stopped several 100 kiloton nuclear warheads in their tracks.
Convoys of nuclear warheads are a familiar site in Scotland where they transit to and from the weapons repository at AWE, Berkshire, England to the Submarine Armaments Depot (RNAD) at Coulport, Argyll in Scotland.
Brian waited at a convenient pedestrian crossing and as the convoy approached pressed to button to turn the lights red. As the convoy dutifully stopped Brian laid himself across the road and stayed put until police arrested him.
He has since been charged with a breach of the peace which given the nature of his protest and the things he was protesting against seems a tad ironic to say the least.
Anyway here’s a picture of Brian being arrested with the (temporality) disabled nuclear weapons transport in the background (source THE NATIONAL).
