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.”

I know great Britain, freedom and democracy are a joke to you... but it is obviously important for most people!

Well that was my point. You're excluding NI from your posts.

Another one who doesn't understand that NI is not part of Great Britain. You even seem to be lumping all of Ireland together. Learn some facts before you ask silly questions.

Good call, the Jack is about to be relegated to just another symbol of the bad old days, like the swastika or the Confederate flag.

The blue part comes from Scotland, representing the St. Andrew's cross flag:



It depends on which side you align yourselves.  Here are the iterations in the evolution of the flag:

Belfast post office runs out of passport forms
 
The main post office in Belfast has apparently run out of passport forms "due to the increased demand".
 
Google Trends also reported a spike in searches for terms such as "Irish passport" following the Brexit vote.

Central Post Office Belfast:

Ian Paisley Jr urges Northern Irish citizens to apply for Republic of Ireland passports
'My advice is if you are entitled to second passport then take one. I sign off lots of applications for constituents,' says Mr Paisley



The leading Northern Ireland Unionist, Ian Paisley Jr, has advised constituents to get a Republic of Ireland passport if possible.
An MP with the Democratic Union Party (DUP), Mr Paisley campaigned for Brexit ahead of the referendum.
But he said on Twitter: "My advice is if you are entitled to second passport then take one. I sign off lots of applications for constituents.



"My advice is to take as many as you can especially if you travel to different world trouble zones."
The remain vote carried a 55.8 per cent majority in Northern Ireland, inspiring calls by Republican party Sinn Fein for a referendum in Northern Ireland on a unified Ireland.
Like his late father the Rev Ian Paisley, he is fiercely opposed to republicanism and has supported the Northern Ireland Secretary, Teresa Villiers, over ruling out such a poll.
Offering his conclusions on the Brexit result, he said: 'The union is safe and we are out of Europe, No conflict just victory!'
Responding to a Gary Lineker tweet about Brexit, in which the former England footballer said he was "ashamed of my generation", Mr Paisley joked: "I didn't think you played that bad. You are being hard on yourself."

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/unionist-ian-paisley-jr-mp-constituents-apply-republic-of-ireland-eire-passports-a7102761.html


That's gobsmacking, the leading Unionist in N.Ireland to say that!

Ireland has long been a route into uk for asylum seekers and others...


Get into Ireland then get Irish citizenship... then uk as an EU member on Irish passport...



Same as in other eu countries... get in... get citizenship... then get passport... then get into uk...



Hopefully this out vote means an end to this too!!!

Oh good grief, how stupid are you.   They are not going to move to the South, they are going to hold two passports.

hmmm odd how scotlans vote is 60% of the population when the turnout was below 60% but the uk's turnout which was 72% is invalid.,

The main post office in Belfast has apparently run out of passport forms "due to the increased demand".
 
Google Trends also reported a spike in searches for terms such as "Irish passport" following the Brexit vote.

Central Post Office Belfast:

Hello there Flap... it's just another example of the lefties 'quantum thinking'...!


And they are also forgetting that over 2million Scots have already voted to stay in the UK... fully aware that the eu referendum was coming for the whole of UK to decide... and fully aware that the result could well be leave!

'My advice is if you are entitled to second passport then take one. I sign off lots of applications for constituents,' says Mr Paisley



The leading Northern Ireland Unionist, Ian Paisley Jr, has advised constituents to get a Republic of Ireland passport if possible.
An MP with the Democratic Union Party (DUP), Mr Paisley campaigned for Brexit ahead of the referendum.
But he said on Twitter: "My advice is if you are entitled to second passport then take one. I sign off lots of applications for constituents.



"My advice is to take as many as you can especially if you travel to different world trouble zones."
The remain vote carried a 55.8 per cent majority in Northern Ireland, inspiring calls by Republican party Sinn Fein for a referendum in Northern Ireland on a unified Ireland.
Like his late father the Rev Ian Paisley, he is fiercely opposed to republicanism and has supported the Northern Ireland Secretary, Teresa Villiers, over ruling out such a poll.
Offering his conclusions on the Brexit result, he said: 'The union is safe and we are out of Europe, No conflict just victory!'
Responding to a Gary Lineker tweet about Brexit, in which the former England footballer said he was "ashamed of my generation", Mr Paisley joked: "I didn't think you played that bad. You are being hard on yourself."

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/unionist-ian-paisley-jr-mp-constituents-apply-republic-of-ireland-eire-passports-a7102761.html


That's gobsmacking, the leading Unionist in N.Ireland to say that!
If I was gary linaker I would be more ashamed of cheating on my wife.

Don't panic Dean.  It's all negotiable.  

If Scotland wishes not to stay in the EU, and the Scotland Act, section 29, prohibits withdrawal, then Scotland should immediately register (with the EU) it's disavowal of UK's withdrawal with the EU, on it's own behalf, and independent of the UK resignation, and: (1)assert their right to independent sovereignty (within the UK); and (2) assert a right to remain in the EU (within the UK).

That way Scotland is not bound by any action taken by the UK, and any move to remove Scotland from the rolls of the EU, will be deemed an ouster (by the EU), not a resignation.  That changes everyone's negotiation position.  Scotland severs it's intentions from the UK; the UK is denied the power to act on behalf of Scotland; and the EU, should it remove Scotland, will establish precedent that it claim's a right, and will unilaterally, gratuitously, remove a member.  This latter establishes a sanction given to the Union, that should give pause to other members.

It's a chess game; position your pieces.

NOT TO WORRY,  Deano...

That would mean a few hundred people taken off the unemployed queues on both sides..

Nice little economic boost to those local border communities.         sunny

didge wrote:Incorrect
Scotland is only within the EU as a part of a UK treaty, not an independent Scottish treaty. Of which this same flawed claim to veto was brought up in 2914. Where there is no precedence for a part of the UK. to cast any veot on a uk voye. Scotland requires a seperate EU treaty and indepence. Only by independce would Scotland be free to decide their

That's the beauty of becoming proactive right away.  We are not talking about veto here, but membership.  Veto competition is another matter; here we are talking about survival of the relationship that both Scotland and the EU want.  England can go; we won't veto that. It's just that we won't be joining England. It's positioning, to take best advantage of what you already have.

Scotland already has partial independence through devolution and an independent legislative body.  And, of all the luck, with section 29 of the Scotland Act already in place, she already has a legislative mandate to stay in (not to withdraw from) the EU.  It's a fait accompli.

didge wrote:So neither the EU or Scotland can do anything and Scotland cannot overrule a Uk based referendum

Ah, but you see?  Scotland is not doing anything to overrule the UK.  She is merely taking advantage of her preexisting home rule to say, hey, we can't do that...we've got section 29 here!

didge wrote:So Scotland can only gain indepence and only by a referendum. They are only part of the UK treaty
So if scotland severs away froom the uk. It can only bee done illegally, as they are part of union acts with the uk

Scotland is not seeking independence (just yet).  She is merely asserting the rights that the UK has already given her.  Scotland already has partial independence and home rule.  

Having written section 29, with the full knowledge and acquiescence of the UK, Scotland is merely asserting it's own law, as authorized by the UK.  The UK must either retract home rule for Scotland, or respect it's previous commitments and allow it to respect it's own laws already in place.

We needn't worry about an independent Scotland just yet.  The goal is to divorce from England's decision to leave the EU and to convince the EU that Scotland is already there, and has the right of retention (not seeking) of membership in the EU.

Twisty waffle from Quill...


Referendums such as this eu one and the recent Scots one are once in a generation things... it's been 40 years since the last say on things with Europe...


You can't keep going on about having another go until you get the "right" answer...

Scotland is not a fully indepedent state
That requires a referendum, of which we have had two years ago and the people voted to remain part of the UK.
So they wiould require either to become indepedent or require the Governemnt of the UK to allow them to have a special agreement with the EU
So Scotland cannot act and make a treaty with the EU.
She also has to waiit as has every other nation that has applied to join, has to first meet the cretieria tro join and be approverd and not be vetoed by any of the member states. The UK could block any move by Scotland until she has the right to leave by vote of the scottish people. If she attempts to apply to join, she will be breaking international law, as she has a treaty and union with the UK
. So you really have not got a clue what you are talking about

As usual, you are slow to grasp a dynamic point.

These are uncharted waters, but the action at hand is at the behest of the UK.  Scotland asks for nothing but to be left in its place.  So the action here to be taken would be that of the UK.  Scotland has no need for a referendum.

Furthermore, Scotland's position vis-a-vis the EU is to do nothing.  It asks nothing more than to permit its continued membership.  If the EU ousts Scotland, it is gratuitous.

As soon as this is all accomplished, the Pacific States of America will be extending an invitation to Scotland to join it in a grand awakening of the new, New World.

Cheers...

I'll take it. It's another vote, regardless of your reasons. But again, Scotland has no need of a referendum...it need only communicate that it wants no changes. Wink
