Episode 69 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

This week, Craig Dalzell talks to Anthony Salamone, the Managing Director of European Merchants, about his Blueprint for an independent Scotland’s accession as an EU member.

They discuss some of the myths surrounding the Scottish EU membership debate including the supposed “queue” that Scotland is said to be at the back of as well as the prospect of another country vetoing out membership.

They then look at the advantages that Scotland would have compared to other current and prospective members who have gone through the accession process.

And then they talk about the barriers that Scotland might face, both in terms of external challenges to prepare for and some of the things that Scotland should not do if it wishes to become an EU member.
