This week, Craig talks to Anthony Salamone from European Merchants who is here to discuss the Scottish Government’s latest independence White Paper on Scotland’s accession to the European Union. They discuss where the Scottish Government has started to demonstrate deeper understanding of EU processes and structures but also where the paper continues to gloss over or ignore critical barriers such as currency, compliance with EU standards and the democratic process of demonstrating a mandate to join the Union after independence.
