Scottish independence: No Commonwealth issue - SNP

Scottish independence: No Commonwealth issue - SNP | Referendum 2014 | Scoop.it
THE SNP has said an independent Scotland will remain part of the Commonwealth, amid suggestions by a top official that membership would not be automatic.
Peter A Bell's insight:

It is rather disturbing how much these British nationalists relish what they perceive to be problems for Scotland. They really do not have our interests at heart at all.

Another "barroso" moment....and counting.

Another day, another Fear Story from a Tory. NO substance, just speculation and assertion. Could it be timed to be released as Scots take some pride in the Comonwealth Games ticket on sale. How sad, how pathetic, playground tactics.
