Scotsman paper helped downgrade Scotlands voice in Europe

This once fine paper helped reduce Scotlands best chance at independence in 292 years by towing the London line for months before the election in May 1999.

Now it wrings it slippery little hands and worries shall the Scots have enough of a say in Europe after the upcoming election?


An independent Scotland, inside the EU would be a powerful body for change , its representation far higher and more direct than the FIX Scotland is given now. 8 Scottish MEPs as opposed to approximately 17 if we were independent.

Thanks 'Scotsman', a bit late now isn't it?
