Stur­geon’s strange at­ti­tude

The Oban Times - - Letters -

Sir, Ni­cola Stur­geon and the SNP in­sist Scot­land must re­main in the EU sin­gle mar­ket and will hold an­other ref­er­en­dum if it is dragged out against her wishes.

It is a strange at­ti­tude to take since Scot­land does four times more trade with the rest of the UK than it does with all of the other 27 coun­tries in the EU to­gether.

Fur­ther­more, although goods are sold tar­iff-free, if our net con­tri­bu­tion to the EU paid by tax­pay­ers was im­posed on traders it would amount to a tar­iff of more than seven per cent. Wil­liam W Scott, St Bal­dred’s Road, North Ber­wick.
