COMMENTS from Nissan chief executive Carlos Ghosn warning the UK about exiting the EU underline how a No vote in the referendum is the only real threat to Scotland’s place in Europe and the single market.
Mr Ghosn said that should anything change, Nissan would have to reconsider its strategy and investments for the future.
This flies in the face of comments from senior figures in the anti-independence campaign – including the Chancellor, George Osborne – who have consistently asserted that the referendum and prospect of an independent Scotland are deterring inward investment in Scotland, despite the latest Ernst and Young report indicating that such investment in Scotland has just hit a 15-year high.
It is perfectly clear the only threat to Scotland’s EU membership comes from Westminster and its growing determination to pursue isolationism and withdrawal. For those in Scotland who support EU membership, the only way to guarantee this is a Yes vote in the independence referendum next September.
