It’s official

salmond sturgeon krankiesSo this morning it has been confirmed that Brussels will definitely refuse to let Scotland  automatically join the European Union if voters back Alex Salmond’s plans for  independence.   Officials at the European Commission have  revealed Scotland’s EU membership will ‘cease to apply’ if it is no longer part  of the UK and the Spanish government has made clear it  would ‘veto’ any attempt by Scotland to join since this would likely bolster calls for Catalonian independence.

Since the acceptance of any new member must be unanimous, this is a major blow [and embarrassment] for Mr  Salmond, who has publicly claimed that Scotland would automatically continue  to be in the Euro bloc.

Surely the last nail in this particular political coffin?
