The Spanish foreign minister has said that an independent Scotland would have to join the back of the queue (now where have we heard that phrase before...) if it wanted to rejoin the EU; and David Mundell, the Scottish secretary, has said that Scotland, whatever its referendum decision, will now not be able to avoid leaving the EU.
Presumably Nicola Sturgeon is just running around with her fingers in her ears screaming "LA LA LA, I CAN'T HEAR YOU"
Honesty, seems massively unfair on Scotland that!
The Spanish have been very down on our chances of entering the EU since the first referendum - I genuinely don't understand why, given that other EU sources have noted they would be quite happy for us to come in as quickly as possible.
As I think about it, it's probably to do with the separatist elements of Spanish politics; the Basque region etc, and keeping them from a precedent for EU membership should they eventually gain their independence.
