Tweet Jeremy Corbyn's mission to Scotland to try and recover his party's position there, coupled with the enthusiasm of so many of his party's MPs for possessing and being willing to use weapons of mass destruction must surely raise an interesting conundrum for him. On the one hand, he wants Labour to defeat the SNP in Scotland, and on the other he wants rid of Trident. But paradoxically, achieving the first of those makes it considerably less likely that he can ever achieve the second.
Given the statements he's been making in Scotland, and the extent to which he's already been equivocating over Trident to appease his MPs, it seems to be increasingly clear which way he'll jump. A victory for Labour is more important to him than getting rid of nuclear weapons. Sadly, but not unexpectedly, he'll turn out to be less different from his predecessors than many have been assuming. Too many people are being taken in by his rhetoric - when push comes to shove, it will always be party over principle.
