Scotland should ‘never leave EU’ - calls for new independence vote grow

Post by sassy on Fri Jun 24, 2016 5:41 am

First topic message reminder :

Leading Scottish politicians are calling for another referendum on independence from the UK after Britain voted to exit the EU. The Scottish public backed staying in the bloc and former SNP leader Alex Salmond says Scotland should “never leave the EU.”


Salmond made the comments during an interview with Sky News: “The sensible thing for Scotland to do would never be to leave the European Union,” he said.

His comments were backed by the current leader of the SNP, Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, who is also backing a second independence vote, after 62 percent of the population voted to remain in Europe. This was against the tide of the rest of the UK where 52 percent voted to leave the bloc.

"Scotland has delivered a strong, unequivocal vote to remain in the EU, and I welcome that endorsement of our European status," Sturgeon said on Friday before the final result was known, as cited by Reuters.

"Scotland has contributed significantly to the Remain vote across the UK. That reflects the positive campaign the SNP fought, which highlighted the gains and benefits of our EU membership, and people across Scotland have responded to that positive message,” she added. 
Sturgeon has remained consistent about her threat to call a second referendum. Speaking in April, she said: “The Scottish parliament should have the right to hold another referendum if there is clear and sustained evidence that independence has become the preferred option of a majority of the Scottish people.” 


In May, Salmond said Scotland would not be pulled out of the EU “against its will.”

But, as we have already covered, that would violate UK law.  Section 29 of the Scotland Act compels Scotland to follow EU law.  How are you going to get rid of that?  Under devolution, you need the permission of Holyrood--Section 28 of the Scotland Act holds: “But it is recognised that the Parliament of the United Kingdom will not normally legislate with regard to devolved matters without the consent of the Scottish Parliament.”

Under devolution (the Sewel Convention) there are two (call them) no-no areas for the UK: 1) those devolved policy areas, and 2) anything that will adjust the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament.  In either of these areas, the UK must first obtain the permission of Holyrood.   Because to change section 29 you are changing the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament, the UK must ask Scotland's permission.  

It ain't gonna happen, pal.  Scotland is not going to grant permission to the UK when, in fact, it would prefer not to leave the EU.
it seems you are getting a tad, as we say here, over tired, what makes you think I am your pal, are you not used to people disagreeing with your mistaken viewpoint?

I could care less, hot-rod. You ever seen a worm on a hot griddle? They writh and twist and go crazy.

Now, what is it about your post that brings that to mind. Laughing

You forgot Wales and Northern Ireland. At the moment, the Scots are British, but if they leave the UK they won't be. We will still be British though - as much as you hate the idea.

For me, Wales and Northern Ireland are not the issue.  The truth is that devolution has been somewhat asymmetrical, with Wales at least taking a different path.

Y'all can call yourselves what you want.  But it's time to separate things into their real parts: Scottish, Irish and English.  The English are for withdrawal from the EU; Northern Ireland and Scotland are not.  

The Scottish path leads directly to the Scottish Parliament.  The Sewel Convention requires it.  Without Scotland's consent to alter section 29, EU law in Holyrood will still prevail.

It might have escaped your notice but NI and Wales are part of the UK, and Wales is part of Great Britain.

I hope the Scots do fuck off and take you with them.

Thank you Syl.  That's most inspiring, but I'm not that old Laughing

The laws I read come directly from Westminster and Holyrood.  They don't come from me.  Say what you want, but de-nile is still only a river in east Africa.

Seriously though, this is the politicians mess, it's ridiculous that the Scots and the English are at loggerheads with each other over the lack of proper government, in firstly securing a fair deal between GB and the EU....and now not having plans in place satisfy ALL of GB.

This in fighting will do a lot more damage to our reputation world wide than the decision to leave.....who can that help?

It's amazing to me that this comes so close on the heels of the Scottish independence vote. It's not your international reputation you need worry about; it's the next Scottish vote.

If they're allowed to have another referendum of course. I'm not worried about it. If they want to leave the UK, they can leave.

Who cares about another referendum? EU law is anchored in hard cement in Scotland.

IF they are granted permission to have another independence referendum you mean?

If so they can do what they should have done last year and vote out this time.

It would be a farce if they voted to stay again....but the way politics are going here anything is possible. Laughing

There's no way that Scotland will stop the UK leaving the EU. If they want to leave the UK, they can do so.

Brexit wont fail.....and I doubt the EU would want Scotland back anyway.
The rules laid down were once out stay out....and at the risk of repeating whats been said a million times, Scotland voted to stay with the rest of GB....and the overwhelming GB vote was to leave the EU. Cool

wee jimmy krankie

As your article states, the EU doesn't want to be accused in buggering in UK politics at this early time.  That's probably the appropriate response.  FCS, your fookin' PM just resigned because of the turmoil surrounding the Brexit vote.

That said, I'd bet the talks are taking place round the back door as we speak.  Wink
should you be commenting on either of those topics as you are neither scottish nor british.

see how your comment works now?

He has more British (Scottish) backbone in his blood than you could ever have and knows more about this country than you. At least he never scuttled off to another country and beat his own country down in the way you have.

Oh the shame.

So people that choose to live somewhere else are "scuttling off"?

Irn have you been drinking? I realise you and quill are currently at a Scottish love-in but.....your comments are getting a bit odd.

Psssst. Quill didn't know who Nicola Sturgeon was.

If Quill is Scottish and lives in the US, then clearly he scuttled off to live in another country. He has a downer on the English, much like Veya - that's to be expected on this forum though.

You're not keeping your eye on the ball, Syl. According to the Scotland Act of 1998, section 29, Scotland must still follow EU law.

Deal with that...it was your UK that created it. And Brexit will fail if it's got two pistons firing against each other.

Maybe the UK should have a referendum to see if we want to get rid of Scotland instead. That could work.

Psssst. Quill didn't know who Nicola Sturgeon was.


If Quill is Scottish and lives in the US, then clearly he scuttled off to live in another country. He has a downer on the English, much like Veya - that's to be expected on this forum though.

But...Brexit is still going to fail.

The rules laid down were once out stay out....and at the risk of repeating whats been said a million times, Scotland voted to stay with the rest of GB....and the overwhelming GB vote was to leave the EU. Cool

The rest of the UK Syl - NI is in the UK, not GB.

Yes....I meant UK. Smile

Suits me. I'd vote to get rid of Scotland if they're going to try to tell the English what to do and go against a democratic UK vote.

Oh yes. Negative, spiteful and bitter little man syndrome.

Do you think if you write it enough times it''ll come true? Honestly Quill you are funny. Laughing
You are on a wind up obviously, but you are just repeating yourself now.
Facts are facts....maybe as a lawyer you don't see that as clearly as we do. Razz

The Scotland Act 1998 (1998 c. 46) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.


And the UK is leaving the eu...

It's UK law, tommy. The UK will need to repeal or amend the European Communities Act (ECA) of 1972, which is the statute giving domestic effect to EU law in the UK...and, section 29 of the Scotland Act of 1998. However, under the Sewel Convention, Westminster may not change any law which varies the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament, without its permission.

To alter section 29 would alter the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament. Ergo: Westminster must come to Holyrood, hat in hand, in order to strike the EU law mandate. Scotland will say no, I suspect.

Oh yes. Negative, spiteful and bitter little man syndrome.

That's why I'm not bothering to actually debate the issues. The spite on here has been a bit of an eye-opener. Even though the anti-English sentiment has always been present on here, it's reached new heights, and there are now very few people on here who I want to debate with at the moment. Cool

Your cheerleading, Syl. Good for you. But that isn't what's needed here. What's required here is skill. And you are way out of the loop. Laughing

Let's stick to the issues of law, shall we?  Eds...we don't need any of your conspiracy theories.  

Now, the law is written in black and white.  What have any of you to say that refutes the truth, or alters the dilemma?

It was me who said that. I can't be bothered to debate anything with you. Your racism against the English is so great that it's clouding your judgement.

Sewel is about devolved powers... not the uk membership of the EU...


The Scotland Act will be changed to remove the need to abide by eu law as will the UK as a whole.


Clutching at straws quim... and you know it!!!

Your evading the subject. So would I, if it were going that badly for me.

But it isn't...the issue is law. I've pointed out that the UK has painted itself into a corner. It has an actual antinomy (someone look that world up, fcs). That's not my fault. I'm just the messenger.

Whats needed here is a positive attitude re the new start the UK is embarking on....for some reason you are gloating and hoping we will fail, we wont.
I don't pretend to be the forum brain Quill....I always find if EVERYONE writes honestly instead of pretending to be expert on everything...debates move on instead of getting bogged down with crap. Wink

No, the issue is that you're pretending to be Scottish and you're being racist and spiteful towards the English. You know you're talking shite - like you always do.

Do you know who Nicola Sturgeon is yet?
