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
2. It is a 100% certainty that the Scottish Government will be good faith actors n Scotland's EU membership negotiations. /4 #ScotRef
3. It is a 100% certainty that the priority of both Scotland & the EU will be ensure there is absolutely NO disruption to the hundreds of thousands of EU citizens living & working in Scotland & hundreds of thousands of Scots living & working in EU member states. /5 #ScotRef
4. It is a 100% certainty that Scotland & the EU overwhelmingly agree with each other on every single fundamental principle of EU membership. /6 #ScotRef
5. It is a 100% certainty that Scotland adhere's to and implements every single fundamental principle of EU membership. /7 #ScotRef
6. It is a 100% certainty that Westminster will have absolutely NO seat at the table when Scotland and the EU negotiate Scotland's membership. Neither will the Brexit supporting Tories who keep lying to you that the EU wont let Scotland in.. /8 #ScotRef
7. It is a 100% certainty that after negotiations are complete, every single thing will have already been agreed between Scotland & ALL EU member states prior to a membership vote taking place which will be a formality. /9 #ScotRef
8. It's a 100% certainty EU would want an indy Scotland as a member. Its a founding principle of EU, membership is open to ANY European State which respects it's values. Scotland doesn't just respect those values, we fucking created most of them in the enlightenment /end #ScotRef
