    So essentially things are much the same as they would have been in 2014. Remind me, how did THAT once-in-a-generation vote play out?

    Not the same at all. There was no suggestion of any EU “fleet” in 2014, and FoM was a given back then - there was no threat that it was going to be removed.

    Plus, of course, there’s the major difference of the impression that England is forcing Scotland to leave the EU against it’s wishes.

    I don’t have a particular drum to beat in this either way, but you can hardly say that it is the same as 2014.

    They do and have said it actually. A threat that we would lose our biggest trading partner. I agree that its nonsense to say that.

    We would be in the EU so would have the same trading arrangements as the rest of the EU with rUK.

    We might have a hard border if rUK has a no deal with the EU. If they have some sort of customs union with the EU then it won't be as necessary.

    Personally I'm not against the Euro but that myth that we would be forced to use it has been busted. e.g. Sweden is in the EU but hasn't started using the Euro.

    Fact: An Independent Scotland would not have to use the euro. – Business for Scotland

    We'll use whichever currency you use to buy our oil, water, gas, electricity, whisky,...
