Ministers must publish EU advice
We now have it straight from the horse's mouth. Scotland will have to apply to be a member of the European Union if it breaks away from Britain to form
a separate state. The SNP's assertion that we would be granted automatic entry has proven to be, like so many of their arguments, a baseless assertion.
How much longer can Scottish Ministers refuse to publish the advice that they have been given on this subject? Instead of spending thousands of pounds of public money on keeping things secret, they should be telling us what independence would actually mean. Will we be a member of the EU? Will we have to scrap the pound and join the Euro? Will we have to introduce border controls across the rest of the UK?
These are questions that need to be answered.
