Unionist side produces report which supports entirely the unionist side on Scottish Independence.
Legal opinion obtained from Professors Crawford and Boyle of Oxford and Edinburgh Universities respectively states, Scotland will inherit nothing in terms of treaties, agreements assets currently enjoyed by the UK. Meanwhile, with independence; Scotland will be a new state starting from scratch.
Except in terms of the UK national debt, which is where their opinion inexplicably stopped. (At least according to the BBC this morning.)
Nicola Sturgeon queried: "It also raises a very important question for the UK government - if they are prepared to lay claim to the assets of the UK are they also prepared to take on all of its liabilities, such as the UK national debt?"
I would ask the same question myself.
(Foot note: Prof Crawford was on Radio Scotland this morning, by way of a digest; he said yes, Scotland would not inherit treaties and agreements but most would just roll over, an application to the UN for example would be straight forward. Meanwhile, in what can only be described as a disturbing lack of concentration; the BBC interviewer asked a useful question about EU membership, the Professor said both Scotland and the rest of the UK would have some renegotiating to do. So, another report which is all mouth and no trousers. Westminster could of course just ask the EU about membership instead of relying on opinion, but it won't. One wonders why?)
