The latest astonishing intervention in the
debate has come from Independence
who said that even after a majority vote for Giles Paxman
the Westminster Government could simply say “no” and that would be that. Independence
Giles who?, I hear you say.
Well, he is the British ambassador in
He is also the younger brother of Brit-nut Spain Jeremy.
He made his remarks to Spanish journalists during a breakfast briefing in
Paxman obviously felt he had to say something after the Spanish Government denied
based reports that it would block and Independent Scotland’s entry into the EU.
The Spanish pointed out that they would treat both new entities the same. London
Although what our man in
says is true.
In fact Westminster Parliament could vote Madrid
into Scotland tomorrow if they
chose. One imagines that even they has a better grip on reality than the Paxman
Still he may only have been pointing this out to the Spanish media who may be unaware of just how much the so called “equal partnership” union is skewed in favour of the old imperialists. If so, then I suggest his ambassadorial skills are found wanting.
