Mr [Alex] Salmond [of the
ScotchScottish National Party] has made it clear he would keep the Queen in an independent Scotland, that Scotland would retain the pound and also apply to join Nato – all of which have sparked fierce opposition from left-wingers in the independence camp.
A country that is not sovereign in its own currency is not sovereign. Does Salmon really want the City of London to turn a newly independent Scotland into the next Greece? That would certainly be an ironic outcome.
