To argue that Trident is about jobs is to conceed the main issue without a debate

Here we go again.

Last time it was ship building and the white elephant carriers to be assembled in Rosyth as an economic bribe to keep Scotland in the Union.

Today's its the jobs at Faslane.

Do any of those trying to use the impending economic disruption of ending the location of the UK's nuclear deterrent on the Clyde not see that its the principled argument that needs to be won first, not an argument over supposed economic benefits of seeing defence as a government jobs creation scheme ?

Will no one make the case for:

1) A UK independent nuclear deterrent; and
2) That it should be Trident ?

Because if they don't the argument is already lost by the clowns lead by Cameron.

It's a political football of course.
