The Press and Journal reports: War Games: Code name Pestonia is a 'disgraceful slur' on Scotland says North MSP A Highland MSP has attacked a massive wargame exercise for the north as a disgraceful slur on Scotland. Rob Gibson SNP MSP for Caithness, Sutherland and Ross is furious that the Joint Warrior exercise planned for Cape Wrath and elsewhere around the Highland coast later this month, has as its code name, Pestonia. Its make-believe scenario is stopping a nation separating from a larger power by force. Mr Gibson said: "Pestonia comes hard on the heels of the two year-long cover-up of a nuclear leak at the HMS Vulcan engine test plant... Is the Joint Warrior exercise, in Ministry of Defence plans, an undisguised hint that Scotland could be a target for military action when we vote Yes in the referendum this September? The Westminster/Whitehall establishment seems capable of even deeper levels of disrespect to Scots who are the unwilling hosts of this land, sea and air assault on our north western peninsula of Cape Wrath. The military minds that thought up the name Pestonia and their aim to stop secession due to 'economic and ethnic factors' would be seen as sinister if we didnt just laugh at their crass disrespect to Scots." He added: "It's time for Westminster to call off the dogs of war from Caledonia as they themselves are the real Pestonia.... Scotland's non-nuclear defence can prosper without the military minds that dreamed up Pestonia." So is the exercise an undisguised hint that Scotland could be a target of military action when it votes Yes in September? If it is an "undisguised hint", would anyone have to ask if it was? Has the good MSP ever heard of the surname 'Peston', and does the alleged breakaway nation in the exercise actually correspond to the borders of Scotland? Discuss.
