James back CND in Scotland
In the year of the organisation's 50th birthday, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament have been promised substantial support from the rock band James on their visit to Scotland this week.
'We will be present at James' forthcoming gigs,' says Lorna Waite of CND in Scotland, 'with funky t-shirts, peace badges, and a striking visual presence on stage. All monies raised will go towards getting rid of Trident from Scotland.'
With reference to the presence of Trident warheads at Faslane Naval Base on the Clyde, and the fact that all of Britain's nuclear missiles are based in Scotland, James singer Tim Booth said: 'If Britain insists on arming itself with weapons of mass destruction it seems traditionally underhand to park them all in Scotland'.
James play the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh, on 24 April, and Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, 25 April.
