Nicola Sturgeon mocks 'pig-headed' Cameron

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon attacked "pig-headed" David Cameron in her final speech at the SNP party conference.

Attacking the austerity measures put in place by the Government, she said:

"The Prime Minister's attitude to Scotland betrays the worst characteristics of his government.

"Arrogant, patrician, out of touch, pig-headed some might say."

There were pledges on childcare and new NHS treatment centres as she eyed a historic third term in power for the SNP.

The safety of the UK's Trident nuclear weapons is to be discussed in Parliament today, after the SNP secured a debate slot.

The party wants to press UK government on recent claims made by a whistleblower concerning the state of the weapons programme.

Able Seaman William McNeilly, 25, caused a manhunt after he published an 18-page report online containing a series of allegations about nuclear submarines based at Faslane, which he called a "disaster waiting to happen".

Alex Salmond, the party's foreign affairs spokesman, said: "Trident is a key issue for people in Scotland. It is bad enough that Scotland is forced to house these weapons of mass destruction but these alleged breaches of security are deeply worrying - there must be absolutely no complacency."
