Let's Welcome SCOTLAND in the European Union
The European Union (EU) woke up in shock last Friday, 24 June 2016, after the referendum that took place throughout the United Kingdom (UK) resulted in what is called "Brexit".
The result from the referendum in the UK were as follows:
51.9% of British citizens voted to leave whereas 48.1% chose to remain in the European Union.
Undisputedly, the "leave" won.
Yet we must remember that the United Kingdom is not JUST about England but about all four constituent countries namely England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Indeed, if you look at the result of the referendum in the four different nations you find two groups with the following result:
· England and Wales voted to LEAVE by respectively 53.4% and 52.5% (remain 46.6% and 47.5%)
· Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to REMAIN by respectively 62.00% and 55.8% (leave 38% and 42.2%).
While England and Wales have chosen to divorce the EU, Scotland and Northern Ireland have expressed their desire to continue their journey together with that very Union.
As a result, the First Minister of Scotland, Nicola Sturgeon, alongside the Scottish Parliament, is considering a referendum to gain Scotland’s independence from the UK and subsequently remain part of the EU or at the very least start the accession process.
This petition is addressed to the European Parliament, the European Commission and the European Council. Its aim is to request the European Union to assure Scotland of its, of our, support in the eventuality that it would gain its independence from the UK and request to join the EU. We, the Peoples of Europe as well as our institutions, must do everything in our power to make sure, if this were to happen, that Scotland will be integrated in to the EU as soon and as easily as possible.
