Dear Douglas Alexander,
Just to check you are not “making it up as you go along” (sic) in your op-ed in today’s Sunday Herald, could you be kind enough to provide me with the necessary references that support your statement that it is a “factual matter of European law which the European Commission and leading academics agree on” which would lead an independent Scotland to no longer be part of Europe.
I’m not a member of the SNP, but am working on a book on the Election campaign in the context of the 300 anniversary of the Union, so obviously sourcing and referencing matter to me. If you or your office would be kind enough to point me to the following:
The article(s) in European law which would result in Scotland being removed from the Union and made to apply for re-entry at the “end of a very long queue”
The list of leading academics you cite who agree with this interpretation.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
