It is being reported today that the Governor General of Scotland, David Mundell MP, the Conservatives man in Scotland rather than Scotland’s man in the Cabinet, will TELL Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland, that there is no circumstances in any shape or form that will allow Scotland to maintain membership of the European Union.
Mundell will also repeat the lies that Scotland will face a lengthy wait, have to join the Euro, and the Schengen borderless zone. The Governor General is expected to say (obviously wee leak here from Tory Pravda) “I think it is important to be clear, because there has been a lot of public debate on this point – that Scotland will not be in the EU at the end of this process.
“There is no set of circumstances in which Scotland could remain a member of the EU after the rest of the UK has left.
“If Scotland’s constitutional position were ever to change, it would have to apply to be a member of the EU afresh – and we should not make easy assumptions about the length of time this would take, the process Scotland would have to follow or the terms of membership that may be on offer.”
The Express goes on to report another wee lie that there are 10 countries ahead of Scotland in the Queue to join should Scotland apply to join even though we know there us no Queue. Irrespective of how you voted in the EU referendum it is clear that Scotland’s voice was not considered, as most of us already knew, but this should be a wake up call to all the soft NO voters out there. It doesn’t matter what they promise the next time, the love bombs, the UK family, the shared history, it’s all bollocks. When the EU negotiations start what are the Tories willing to sacrifice to save London and English interests, fishing right, oil and gas, food and drink. Do you really think the Tories will work to protect Scottish interests over the interests of Ingerland!
Now I won’t pretend that an independent Scotland will just walk into membership of the EU, if the EU still exists, after a referendum on membership of the Scottish people, but I would be surprised if it took 10 years given that Scotland meets most of the criteria anyway, but what is not right is that a party elected on 36% of the popular vote and with one MP in Scotland can glibly cast aside Scotland’s wishes with a zero attempt to even try. That is all about the decision that England has taken and not Scotland.
I just don’t believe that anyone with a brain can ignore the many reasons for Scotland to take back her sovereignty, they are growing more and more everyday. We were warned.
