Politics: McAllister expects intense debate about Scotland's independence
Brussels (DTS news agency) – CDU MEP David McAlester sees the United Kingdom facing a “passionate constitutional debate” about Scotland’s independence following the nationalists’ victory in the Scottish elections. He told the Phoenix broadcaster that.
The possibility of another referendum “depends on whether the Scottish government succeeds in creating such political pressure on the British government that the prime minister reconsiders his position” and approves the referendum. They believe that Scotland’s entry into the European Union is possible. “In theory, an independent Scotland could become a member of the European Union, applying for membership first, but there is still a long way to go,” McAllister said. “Finally, like all other countries, the European Union will see to it that all political, legal and economic requirements are met.” However, the starting position of Scotland is good. “Scotland was a full part of the European Union as a full part of the United Kingdom by the end of January 2020,” McKeister said. “In this regard, of course, Scottish membership will, for example, initiate the accession process under different circumstances than in the Western Balkan countries.”
