The odd thing about the SNP's push for separating Scotland from the UK is there plan to surrender sovereignty as soon as possible to the EU afterwards.
The UK's current viting weight in the council of ministers is about 8%. Since Scotland is about a 1/10 of the population I assume ( but await the EU anaorak correction ) it will be less that 1% for Scotland.
The EU already has possention of the fish in UK (Scottish waters ) and is using the Macondo event in the Gulf of Mexico as an excuse to try to take control of Oil & Gas.
Now that majority voting is being used to dissolve the nation states Scotland faces a tragedy of the commons as the rest of the EU votes to take their resources.
So Alex Salmond's campaign for indepndence is in fact nothing of the sort.
There is only one political party that campaigns for independence ( for the UK ) and that's UKIP. The only political party with a positive message for the Union.
