L’Europe des Régions fait peur

_________________________________

Les Ecossais ont déjà leur parlement, ils vont se prononcer bientôt à propos de leur indépendance par rapport au United Kingdom.
Pour être reconnu par l’Europe, tout nouvel Etat indépendant doit cependant avoir l’aval de l’ensemble des Etats membres de l’Union.
L’Espagne – qui craint la contagion auprès des Catalans et des Basques – a éjà fait savoir qu’elle mettrait son véto à une telle reconnaissance. Gageons qu’elle ne sera pas la seule …

Et pourtant, l’Europe des Régions progresse discrètement mais sûrement. Elle cherche sa voie.
Plus d’Europe et plus de pouvoirs aux Régions vident progressivement les Etats Nation de nombreuses prérogatives. Reste la question de la solidarité, mais ne peut-elle être assurée plus efficacement à l’échelle européenne ?

Allez donc voir ici 10 bonnes raisons de vous intéresser au referendum sur l’indépendance écossaise.

Salmond’s dream of independent Scotland joining the EU is shattered by threat of Spanish veto

By MATT CHORLEY, MAILONLINE POLITICAL EDITOR – 28 November 2013

Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister, today desperately insisted that an independent Scotland would be able to stay in the European Union, after the idea was rejected out of hand by the Prime Minister of Spain.
The Scottish National Party’s blueprint for independence depends on Scotland negotiating its way into the EU. But the plan collapse within 24 hours when Spain’s Mariano Rajoy insisted it could not become an EU member automatically and he would veto it. Mr Salmond has insisted that Scotland would be able to join the EU if it votes Yes to independence next year but Mr Rajoy’s intervention exploded that claim.
Spain is opposed to Scottish secession since the government in Madrid is also resisting attempts by Catalonia and the Basque region to break away. The Spanish premier told a press conference: ‘If part of a member state becomes independent, it would be left out of the European Union and it would be good for citizens (in the EU) and Scots to know that, » he is reported to have said. Mr Rajoy added this meant ‘EU entry would need to be approved by all 28 member states’. He went on: ‘I am very clear, as everyone is, that a country that obtained independence from the EU would end up outside of it, and it’s right that Scottish citizens and all the citizens of the Union know that.
