This is just a short submission to present the links to the Scottish Government Documents that Alex Salmond alluded to in the Andrew Neil politics interview, which the Bitter Together parties have created such a song and dance about!
They Accused him of Blatantly Lying, Being a Crook, and even Walter Mitty, Del Boy, Clinton and Nixon.
I suppose it makes a change from comparing him to Hitler, Ghengis Khan and Stalin!
The documents which Salmond alluded to are all here, they all refer to Europe and the stance that Salmond has constently maintained regarding our future membership.
These documents are not SNP pamphlets but actual Scottish Government papers, and as such all have to be Legally scrutinised by the Scottish Governments Legal Directorate.
Choosing Scotland’s Future which was published in 2007.
In Part 5 it states among other things: “An independent Scotland would continue in the European Union and bear the burdens and fulfil the responsibilities of membership.”
Your Scotland, Your Voice, published in 2009. On page 110, it reads: “An independent Scotland would continue membership of the European Union, fulfilling the responsibilities which membership brings, and maintaining its political, economic and social links to Europe.”
And Your Scotland, Your Referendum, published in 2012, said: “Under independence, Scotland would have the rights and responsibilities of a normal, sovereign state and continue its membership in the European Union.”
Proof Positive that Alex Salmond DID NOT lie!
Who are the Liars now,Labour and Tory, Johann Lamont and Ruth Davidson? Explain yourselves!!
