MSPs quit over NATO decision

Two MSPs have quit the Scottish National Party over the decision to remain linked to NATO. John Finnie and Jean Urquhart will now sit in the Scottish Parliament as Independents.

Last week at the SNP conference, the party narrowly voted to decide to remain tied to NATO if Scotland becomes an independent country. It's thought the pair have quit as they believe that decision is at odds with the SNPs anti-nuclear stance.
