As a Scot, I am appalled and disgusted that Glasgow and Prestwick
airports are being used to refuel CIA planes, which
are transporting human cargo to countries where
torture is systematically practised. The Brown and
Bush governments use the evidence extracted under
torture to detain without trial.

I am equally appalled and disgusted that the Vucaj
family were abducted in the middle of the night from
their home in Drumchapel, Glasgow to Albania where their lives
are in danger and their daughter is at risk because of
the sex trade.

Nuclear power is back on the agenda, and householders
living around Hunterston nuclear power station in Ayrshire are given potassium iodate
pills in the event of radioactive leakages.

I watched in disbelief as an 82-year-old man was
physically removed from the Labour party conference
and later refused re-entry under the Prevention of
Terrorism Act. He only said "nonsense", and this more recently a Dundee woman was detained under the same act for
walking on a cycle track.

Foreign policy, defence and security, immigration and
energy decisions are made in Westminster and Washington.
