It has been calculated by R.U.S.I. (Royal United Services Institute) that the cost of involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan until 2014 was £30bn. Scotland’s share of that expenditure could have paid for 146,000 nurses or 40,000 consultants for NHS Scotland, or built 525 new Scottish schools. London calls this the UK Dividend from remaining a major player on the world stage.
