Letter: Scotland in the EU

Click to follow
Sir: Peter Gresham (letter, 4 December) assumes that in the event of the breakup of the United Kingdom, Scotland would be thrown out of the EU but England would remain a member.

It is the United Kingdom that is a member of the EU. The United Kingdom is a union of equals and Scotland is not merely a separate province but a distinct country.

If the break of the "United" Kingdom results in the expulsion of one of the constituent countries, that should apply equally to the remainder.

It is perceived arrogance such as Mr Gresham's that fuels the drive towards separatism in Scotland.
