Renewing Britain's nuclear deterrent system will speed up Scotland becoming an independent country, the SNP's Angus Robertson has warned.
The SNP's Westminster leader said the Scottish people are being ignored by the UK Government, as he reminded MPs renewing Trident is not what constituents want.
Mr Robertson claimed Trident is an an "immoral, obscene and redundant weapons system" in his speech ahead of MPs voting on renewing Trident, which led to applause and cheers by his colleagues in the House of Commons.
He said the party had repeatedly won elections on its "explicitly anti-Trident manifesto".
The people of Scotland have shown repeatedly, clearly and consistently that we are opposed to the renewal of nuclear weapons.
If Scotland is a nation, and Scotland is a nation, it is not a normal situation for the state to totally disregard the wishes of the people, and this Government has a democratic deficit in Scotland, and with today's vote on Trident it's going to get worse, not better.
It will be for the Scottish people to determine whether we are properly protected in Europe and better represented by a Government that we actually elect - at this rate, that day is fast approaching.
Another Scottish independence referendum is fast approaching, SNP warns, after Westminster voted to renew Trident.
Labour MPs reacted angrily after Jeremy Corbyn referred to the party's policy on the UK's nuclear deterrent in the past tense.
Nicola Sturgeon has accused the UK Government of "playing games" over Trident, ahead of MPs voting on the renewal of the nuclear deterrent.
