The EU would forbid a currency union with a non-EU member even if Westminster agreed to it after a referendum on the issue that Scotland would have no say in – the Euro would probably be the only option and that is controlled by Germany as the Greeks etc have found out. So much for an anti-austerity agenda. Border controls and customs checks would be mandated by the EU as Scotland would be an EU entry point.
Without a massive investment in ferry facilities the majority or Scotland’s imports and exports would be through a foreign, non-EU country and furthermore a country whose government the SNP has constantly vilified.
Tell us the truth, Nicola: why are you so against democracy for everybody else on these islands?
