Nice to see so many in the Conservative Party demanding a referendum on leaving a union.
However, the referendum that they should be backing is on their doorstep.
One sure-fire way that the Eurosceptics in the Tory Party and elsewhere could renegotiate the terms of EU membership would be to back Scottish independence.
After separation, both Scotland and the remaining parts of the old union would have, as new nation states, reapply for membership.
The Tories however, have never seen the benefit of a separate Scotland which would rid them of all those irritating Scottish Labour MPs and give them the chance to rule in perpetuity.
And as fellow members of the EU, their students could study at Scotland’s universities for free.
Just a thought.
