  1. Good news that there will be a £400 million investment in RAF Lossiemouth to accommodate the P-8 fleet. And interesting to read that the investment was confirmed as part of a £1.7billion package north of the border unveiled by Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon during a visit to Edinburgh. In light of recent comments from Nicola Sturgeon that she wants Faslane to be the headquarters for the new ‘Scottish navy’ I hope that investments north of the border won’t be a waste of money, given the spectre of a new Scottish referendum on independence.
