SPANISH FOREIGN MINISTER SAYS INDEPENDENT SCOTLAND WOULD BE WELCOME IN EU

Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell has said that Spain would welcome an independent Scotland into the EU.

When asked about the future of Scotland, Mr Borrell said: “If Westminster agrees, we are not going to be more Papist than the pope. If Westminster agrees why would we be against it?”

He continued: “I think the United Kingdom will split apart before Spain. That is a clear sign of the United Kingdom’s weakness.”

The intervention follows an opinion poll which found that Scots overwhelmingly believe that an independent Scotland would be granted EU membership – with 63% agreeing, and only 22% disagreeing.

Commenting, SNP MSP George Adam said:

“This intervention confirms what people in Scotland already know – and demolishes a favoured Unionist scare-story. 

“Independence will allow Scotland to be an equal partner within Europe – instead of being dragged out against our will by the Tories.

“That message of hope is increasingly powerful as the reality of a Tory hard Brexit begins to bite.”
