Scotland could remain in the EU & would benefit if it did says expert
In the document, Scotland’s Place In Europe, Nicola Sturgeon offered a compromise position in which Scotland could remain in the EU post-Brexit.
This idea has been dismissed out of hand by the UK government as not possible. From the point of view of the UK, Scotland must be dragged out against its will even at a time when Theresa May herself is admitting that Brexit may be a disaster.
Yesterday, Poiares Maduro who is a high ranking lawyer and a former Advocate General at the European Court of Justice, told the EU Parliament that Sturgeon’s plan would be viable.
Not only did he say that there was a precedent for part of a state remaining in the EU when another part leaves. He also admitted that the Scottish Economy would benefit greatly from such a move. It is his contention that if Scotland did remain, businesses would flock here in order to remain in the Single Market.
