Today, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) comes into force. The Treaty has been signed and ratified by 51 countries, meaning that from this month, countries that have signed will not co-operate or assist any country in remaining nuclear-armed or nuclear-complicit. However, the UK Government is not a signatory to the Treaty, which leaves it looks badly out of touch with the vast majority of nations, and public opinion in Scotland and across the UK. New polling from the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament reveals that 59% of the UK public support the UK signing up to the TPNW, and a huge 77% support a “total ban on all nuclear weapons globally”.
