An Independent Scotland And The EU
Yesterday's post from Apogee produced some excellent comments and one of the main points was the SNP's policy regarding membership of the EU.
I've yet to hear of any SNP MP or MSP questioning the policy in recent times and this gives me cause for concern.
Why is the SNP so determined to be dependent upon Brussels yet so determined to be independent of London?
After the financial crash in 2008 Iceland's politicians hurriedly made application for EU membership in the belief that they would gain monetary security. Now the Icelanders are rethinking their politicians' knee-jerk reaction.
If the SNP and the Yes campaign offered their supporters a referendum on EU membership once Scotland is independent, I'm sure their support would increase. The SDA's position is one held by more supporters of independence than politicians wish to believe. Many people don't see the point in severing ties with London only to create them with Brussels. Neither do I.
At Apogee's request I have created a poll in the right hand column. Please do give your opinion.
