Scottish Independence


Recommended Posts

Just with the recent scaremongering about Europe .

On Europe Union Membership

I don’t think this will be a problem as every Scottish person is already a European citizen through the UK.

I know this was posted before:

Former European Parliament president Pat Cox of talks sence about an independent Scotland's entry and membership. Regardless of the BBC News badgering 9 September 2014.

The guy is more in the know than the Spanish or Italian leaders.

Just a couple of quotes on people qualified to comment on the issue.

Pat Cox, former President of the European Parliament explains,” the EU is a democratic enabler - there would be a strong case for admitting Scotland as soon as possible into the EU”

Sionaidh Douglas-Scott, Professor of European and Human Rights Law at the University of Oxford, says this "the doctrine of EU citizenship cannot by itself engender automatic membership of the EU for an independent Scotland. It would be necessary for the treaties to be amended. However, we should not underestimate the central importance of EU citizenship to the issue of an independent Scotland’s EU membership.."

Aidan O'Neill QC argues in eutopia law (14/11/11)

‘rather than analyze the matter from the classic viewpoint of public international law . . . EU law requires one to look at the issue from the viewpoint of the individual EU citizen.’

No other outcome seems defensible from the standpoint of the citizen.

ie Scotland will get in.

People sitting there saying they are scared they're going to lose their country.

The United Kingdom is not a country.

It's a union, a union that has used, and abused the welsh, Irish, Scotland, Ireland seen it and bailed out, we can be a nation again.

And the North of England tbf. Not that we can do anything about that, apart from show them a better way.

DA EMPIRE's on its last legs clearly. I just hope I can get mad wae it tomorrow, instead of decades down the line.
