Actually the pro Union, anti EU including membership of whatever single currency regime remains is entirely logical, if not at first sight. Leave aside the independence for Indepndence sake arguments (which I can have some sympathy with) the best economic interests for Scotland would be served by Union, Indepndence ex-€, then membership of € a very distant third.
The easy one is the € (assuming this still exists). From the snake through ERM to the € history has made three things abundantly clear. 1. There are only three players whose interests are served - Germany, France and the Bundesbank. Read any Economic history of the 1980- early 2000s to understand this (Connelly's The Rotten Heart of Europe is a good start if a nightmarish read) 2. Each of the players have fundamentally different objectives that can and do conflict with each other. History is clear that the interests of all other countries are subordinate to this troika. 3. Fixed exchange rates (contrary to € propaganda) magnify economic swings and condem periphery players to competive disinflation and or wage deflation and or higher than otherwise unemployment. Scotland has too many clever economists to fall for that error hopefully.
So that leaves the other two. From the argument above, it would appear that independence should be the best answer surely. Well perhaps not. The Scottish economy's size is unlikely to support the full infrastructure that goes with Indepndence as well as the status quo. Simple economies of scale. Borrowing costs eg at the sovereign level (and by consequence at the corporate level) would increase most likely. If you are a Scottish company with high gearing why run the risk of being capped by the small country rating cap that Scotland would suffer. You decamp south of the border PDQ. Then the whole issue of central banks/pensions etc......of course you could keep the pound but that defeats the whole objective since you would lose any control over interest rates and currency if you go independent.
In the current situation, Scotland has the benefits that accrue from being part of the union, representation at the local level and at the union level and therefore influence over the key tools of economic and political life. (better than the English?) The economy would be saved the folly of a fixed exchange rate that is designed for the benefit of the three listed above. Scotland is a beautiful country, with a clear national identify (even if it really needs to find a decent national anthem to replace the dirge of FoS that should remain limited to rugby showers and the like), a devolved assembly, excellent education which can teach the rest of the Uk a thing or two, and a clearly identifiable history, culture and heritage. The union protects all this and provides a safer economic future. Is a thistle on the front of a passport really worth giving all that up for??????
