Daily Indyfact No2: An Independent Scotland in the EU would not have to accept the Euro, indeed we wouldn't be able to! Since the rule was first brought in, no country in the EU has been forced to adopt the Euro. For this next bit I will use a simple analogy to explain further.
Say tomorrow all the vegans in Europe said "Screw you! We're sick of your meat-eating ways" and one with a lot of money bought an island somewhere and they established the independent republic of vegans. (sorry vegans)
Well it is clear that their values are "we don't eat meat!". Now, if the Acquis communautaire (rules for joining the EU) said every country had to sell meat, then that would prevent the independent republic of vegans from joining right?

The #ERG and the Tory hard-#Brexit mob want us leap into the dark with both hands tied behind our backs when the reality is, the adversities of their decisions would never bite them, they are insulated from the harm it will bring. (1/11)
They have been busy moving money out and being paid eye watering amounts to advise those with deep pockets how to mitigate the harm and exploit the weakness in this 'new modern Britain'. (2/11)
May's party is ram packed with people who will never have to worry about the untold harm that any form of Brexit will serve up. They'll have their personal fortunes, gold plated pensions and gongs aplenty to keep them warm. (3/11)

That moment when the attorney general of the UK in #brexit debate talking about the #backstop, makes the case for Scotland to hold a second independence referendum to leave the United Kingdom. In England parliament is sovereign, in Scotland, the people are. | #scotref #indyref2
"If fundamental circumstances change, in the view of the United Kindom Then it would attempt to resolve the matter in the joint committee. It would attempt to resolve it politically. But if ultimately the sovereign right of this house and the sovereign right of the british....
... government at the time, if it took the view that indeed those fundamental circumstances had indeed changed, then it has an undoubted legal right to withdraw from ANY treaty." - Attorney General

As highlighted today by @cliodiaspora, today is the day our friends, family, work colleagues, nurses, Cllrs, doctors, dentists, engineers, lawyers etc etc who are EU citizens are forced by that ,'Strong & Stable' emotionally devoid robot @theresa_may to apply & pay to stay ⬇️
We were told EU citizens would continue to enjoy the same rights they do today. We are now constantly told the UK needs to wait to issue guarantees until the EU reciprocates. The EU isn't the one committing an exercise of national self-harm, it is the UK.
The EU didn't throw the UK out. Instead rampant misplaced & misguided British & English exceptionalism took hold and people were convinced that the EU embodied everything that is wrong with this island. People were convinced that a little harm now would = bliss down the line.

Here is what Scotland can do: 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿❤️🇪🇺
EU nationals won't need much persuading this time and we already have all the tools to do it. Please ask them how Brexit impacts them and their lives, listen and empathise. Then sign them up to register to vote...
@euforindyscot has teamed up w/ @ScotIndepFound & @mail_aye and produced these Polish (circa 50% of nEU Scots are Polish!) & English language (20% of overall electorate dropped off register since 2014) flyers for the BIG Indy Kit (also includes 50 Voter Registration forms!)
Re: Polish flyers - The idea is that while you keep some Polish forms handy for campaigning on the ground, you identify and deposit some at key locations like delicatessens, churches and cultural groups. These are guides how to register to vote, which can be done online, too!

The Tory Party MP's have become the modern version of the histocracy of old, managing the country in the manner they see fit, supplementing their will for those in their constituency while simultaneously making unilateral decisions which effect every person in their feafdom.
With the way things are going I am expecting to be burnt out of my home by the Tories to put sheep on my land. The only difference with the 21st century version is that burning out is a court order and the sheep going on the land are multi millionaire housing traders
who happen to make large donations to the Conservative Party and listen to what they say, thereby making them sheep - get it? (You see! Scottish History can be pertinent to commentary on modern political issues - HES!).

Thread: As the prospect of an indy Scotland in EU fast approaches, you'll hear one argument more than most, there are no certainties over Scotland's EU membership. The reason you'll hear this? Its sufficiently weasel worded to sew doubt & be beyond disagreement.. /1 #ScotRef
.. but guess what? Its not beyond disagreement, there are a number of certainties over the issue of an independent Scotland's EU membership and I'm going to list every single fucking one of them here.. /2 #ScotRef
1. It is a 100% certainty that the EU will be good faith actors in Scotland's membership negotiations. /3 #ScotRef
