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

Post by sassy on Fri Jun 24, 2016 10:41 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.”

Sewel is about changing devolved powers... these will not be being changed by removing the requirement to follow eu law and changing to uk law...

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 wouldn't be unhappy if Scotland took another bite at the apple, I admit. But no, that's not my aim here.

The legal problems that I point out would exist even if I didn't. With or without me, the UK is going to run into that telephone pole. Good luck... Wink

So where does that leave your argument now...?

Tommy, I've patiently explained it to you half a dozen times.  I encourage you to learn to read for comprehension.

The Sewel convention is about the implementation of devolution.  The Scotland Act is a part of devolution.  The Scotland Act of 1998, section 29, incorporates EU law.  

That won't go away just because you don't comprehend it.

Scotland are out of the EU....just as we are.
facts are facts. Cool

IF they get a referendum to vote once again for independence and IF the vote is now leave.....they will then have to negotiate with the EU, which is nothing to do with us.
Good luck to them.

Here it is again, tommy. Don't ask anymore:

Qiuill wrote: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.

A referendum is beside the point.  The law already incorporates EU law. It can't be changed without Holyrood's approval. Good luck.

No... sewel is about devolved powers... not uk membership of eu... which is the only reason for any of us following eu law.


Leaving eu and having uk law as paramount Is nothing to do with changing devolved powers of Scotland...!!!


Scotland are in the UK and the UK are leaving the eu.

The Sewel Convention applies when the UK Parliament legislates on a matter which is normally dealt with by the Scottish Parliament as part of its work.

I cannot match your overwhelming sense of superiority in thinking you have found the answer to Scotlands dilemma Quill, so all I can do is say 'Lets wait and see'.

You can be sure in the knowledge that when you are proved wrong, not one Brit will have the capability of crowing and gloating with the same gay abandon as you have shown throughout this thread. Razz

This means that ‘EU law’, and obligations deriving from it, have an autonomous meaning for the (non-ECA dependent sections of) the Scotland Act. So s. 29(2)(d) of the Scotland Act 1998 would need to be amended or repealed to bring an end to the impact of EU law in Scotland. Legislation amending the Scotland Act 1998 in this way would have the aim of removing the devolved institutions’ obligation to respect EU law.

Effectively, this would increase the competences of the devolved institutions, thus giving rise to the second limb of the Sewel convention, given that it would be a considerable varying of the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament and government. Therefore, amending the Scotland Act would require a legislative consent motion under the Sewel convention.

Scotland will say no, I suspect.

Waffle... amending eu law to uk law on the Scotland act does not affect any devolved powers and does not mean uk is legislating over devolved powers so sewel does not apply.


It's as simple as that!!!

You are wrong about sewel and the jurisdiction it has...


"...The way the Scotland Act 1998 works is that the Scottish legislature is given powers to make laws, subject to a list of restrictions on those powers. One of those restrictions is that laws cannot ‘relate to’ matters reserved to the UK Parliament. There is a long Schedule setting out the reserved matters. (The Supreme Court in Imperial Tobacco described the areas which are currently reserved to Westminster as having a common theme: “matters in which the United Kingdom as a whole has an interest should continue to be the responsibility of the United Kingdom Parliament at Westminster”)..."


This is a uk parliamentary matter as it is the uk as a whole that is a member of the EU through uk parliamentary legislation.

This is a uk parliamentary matter as it is the uk as a whole that is a member of the EU through uk parliamentary legislation.

The Scotland Act 1998 is also a uk parliamentary act of uk parliamentary legislation.

Imperial Tobacco v Lord Advocate [2012] UKSC 61 is inapt because it involved a law of the Scottish Parliament, restricting tobacco related displays.  So, it's UK law vs. devolved law.  But, the Scotland Act is a law of the UK Parliament itself, as you in fact note in your next paragraph.  That's UK law vs. UK law...equal levels.  Are you going to argue that the UK Parliament is incapable of trumping itself?

The problem here is not that the UK Parliament cannot reserve powers, but that if the UK Parliament moves to enlarge the powers of the Holyrood Parliament, under the Sewel convention it cannot do so without seeking Holyrood's permission.  Ironically, enlarging the legislative competence of the Scottish Parliament is one of the 'triggers' for the need for permission.  

To remove the adherence to EU law, is to enlarge the legislative competence of Holyrood.  Then the permission of the Scottish Parliament must be sought.  It is then up to Scotland to grant (or withhold) permission.

That's what this is all about.  I doubt Scotland will grant permission to do away with section 29, given that Scotland does not wish to leave the EU. I could be wrong...but I wouldn't bet on it.

The UK have decided to leave the eu...

You cite the generic philosophy (of the supremacy of UK law), but you fail to mention that under the Sewel convention, it is subject to qualification (permission) of the devolved entity (Scotland).  Why would the UK put in the language of section 29, that EU law must apply, if it was contemplating withholding the authority?  In other words, why the antimony?  Are the English just stupid?

What is more tommy, you don't cite the specific language that creates the restriction on the Sewel convention.  Do you think it happens by a wish and a prayer? Is your failure to point out the provision because, in addition to being illogical, it doesn't exist?

You keep repeating yourself, tommy.  That's not disputed.

The issue is not the supremacy of UK law over the law of a devolved entity.  The issue is that the UK itself put in the clause that holds that holds that the legislative competence (jurisdiction, if you will) of Scotland may not be varied without Holyrood's consent.

Again, ironically, to remove the constraint that EU law must be followed, is to increase the scope of Scotland's legislative competence.  This requires the permission of Scotland's Parliament:

Brexit: Its Consequences for Devolution and the Union. wrote:In section 28 of the Scotland Act 1998 (Acts of the Scottish Parliament) at the end add –
“(8) 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.”

The Scotland Act is crafted by the UK Parliament, so it's not a question of supremacy of laws.  The same law that creates devolution of Scotland, demands that Scotland's Parliament be given power to grant or withhold permission.

Other members of the EU are saying they have no wish to deal only with Scotland in the future...the deal was with the UK not Scotland.

You are now suggesting discarding the Sewel convention, which brings into question the whole devolution of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland? How are you going to hold the ship together when its very keel is becoming unhinged?

I'll bet you short-thinkers there in England didn't bargain for this fight. Yet...it's a fight you have set in motion. Your ideas; your law; and now, your Brexit. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Laughing

You simply fail to see the picture here where Scotland, no matter what it does is going to be out of the EU

If it votes for independence it has to apply to join, where countries like Spain, who are against sepratism, will veto them joining.

If they remain, they still will be out of the EU.

With the Uk they will remain with a strong economy and better barganing trading, if not they could be out in the cold for a very long time

So lets happily set Scotland having their independence in motion, because lets face it, they will be fucked

What is your point? Is it, like tommy, that you think devolution should be abandoned?

If the four different political states go their separate ways, Northern Ireland will likely join Ireland, and the rest will be weakened. Wouldn't it be humorous if Ireland turned out to be the big dog of the British Isles?

Something you have argued against since last Thursday.

Tommy, if you don't put your brain in gear, I'm going to just ignore you.

EU membership is a subscription, not a political organization. Scotland is a devolved organization. Scotland has options that Brexit stupidly ignored...completely spaced out. And they were options that the UK itself devised. How does your left hand not know what the right hand is doing?

Now, stop talking prattle or drop out, tommy.

To the contrary, the UK commanded it. Read section 29 of the Scotland Act of 1998, enacted by Westminster.
