PROTESTING pensioners Brian Quail and Angela Zelter are languishing in jal after refusing to accept a court order banning them from campaigning outside a nuclear arms base. Quail, a 79-year-old retired Latin teacher is being kept in HMP Low Moss, while 66-year-old Zelter has been remanded in Corton Vale. The two were arrested by police after taking part in a blockade of the nuclear warhead store at Coulport on Loch Long as part of the Trident Ploughshares campaign. The veteran campaigners, and three others who had taken part in the blockade, were offered bail at Dumbarton Justice of the Peace Court on Wednesday, but only if they agreed to not go “within 100m of the perimeter fence or shoreline of HMS Naval Base Clyde, Faslane”.
