THM nothing will ever arrive , on the yes side, that will satisfy your criteria except perhaps AS declaring he is a liar and he made it all up. Its as likely as you changing tact though
You reckon there's a realistic chance that the state who's residents haven't been given a vote on leaving anything will be considered to be the one which has chosen to become independent? Sometimes you really are living on cloud cuckoo land with your ideas - how about you go away and find anybody sensible who agrees with your suggestions before you ask us on here to refute them.

The bottom line is, this isn't a situation the EU rules cover adequately, and it'll be a point of interesting discussion. But since we want to be in the EU, and the EU certainly wants us, it's kind of hard to imagine where the will to force us out will come from.
these two pretty much sum it up
I doubt anyone really thinks either state wont be in the EU if they want to be in it as the EU is expansionist in nature
They do not have rules to either allow this nor ban this so we have to go with what is the most likely outcome which is that both states are in the EU- its a certain for rUK
Nor is the claim that Scotland will almost certainly have less favourable entry conditions than those enjoyed at the present by the UK.
PROOF PLEASE? I note neither your nor THM demand the same rigorous standard of proof for this assertion or any that supports your view...interesting eh-what does THM say when AS he does this? Have you documentary evidence to back this assertion up ?
No one took the opportunity to disagree either, so I guess that's not a bad consensus, so far
You dont take the opportunity to disagree with or refute my points so I guess I can credibly call that a consensus position then eh
Then compare this with the lukewarm (at best) reactions to the idea of an iS. Not really cricket, that!!!!!
Are you now criticising the EU for remaining neutral on an internal matter of devolution for a member state ? Its almost like you will spin any situation to suit your agenda ...not that this will remind you of anyone
Seriously what do you expect them to do but sit on the fence and not interfere...not least due to the UK position of renegotiation and dislike of interference from the EU. They are not going to do anything to hasten your exit nor inflame tensions are they. It would be injudicious to say the least for them to interfere here and we both know it. There stated neutrality is clearly what we would expect them to do in this scenario. I am not sure you can infer anything from this beyond them being politically savvy. They cannot say what they will do till someone asks and that will have to be UK - not going to happen or iS cannot happen till after the vote.
