Scottish independence: Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Minister says Scotland would get £850 million from EU between 2014 and 2020 if independent but EU budget is closed to 2020, another epic Sturgeon fail, white paper farce continues

Dear All

Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon appears to be losing the plot, one brain cell at a time, and although there are millions, she needs everyone of them to power her limbs.

You could say that it is understandable given how she has driven the independence campaign into the ground.

The Scottish independence campaign is a complete failure at every level.

Just look at the polls, time and time again, she is getting nowhere.

Sturgeon’s latest bizarre claim is that Scotland would benefit from hundreds of millions of pounds of extra funds.

This she says will happen if Scotland is independent member of the European Union.

And to help sell the fable, thousands more jobs will be created.

Is this guaranteed?


She just makes it up as she goes along.

If any current EU member votes no to Scotland's membership, we get nothing.

You have heard of a ‘wishlist’?

Well it appears that the SNP leadership of Salmond and Sturgeon also have an ‘if’ list.

Sturgeon claims that if Scotland was represented as an independent nation in the EU it would have received £850 million in Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) funding.

There are some problems there which have been pointed out which sum up why there is a genuine lack of talent in SNP.

The White Paper is clear that:

"The EU budget has been agreed until 2020. We see no reason for re-opening current budgetary agreements." (page 222)

But Nicola is supposedly to claim:

"…the CAP funding would increase economic output by £1 billion accumulated over the period 2014 to 2020."

The problem with talking utter rubbish is that you have to remember it all; the truth is easily recalled because it doesn’t shift like sand.

This bizarre Sturgeon rant does pose questions:

Is the White Paper wrong and the EU budget can be re-opened? 

Is Sturgeon having yet another "if" list moment similar to ‘if’ I win the Euro I am off to the South of France to sample the culture, if not I am going nowhere!

Does she not have a clue what she is talking about as per usual?

Sturgeon says:

“As an independent country we would have benefited from an additional £850 million in farm payments from Europe, estimated to support an additional 2,500 jobs in our local communities over the period 2014 to 2020.

Page 222 says, the EU budget has been agreed and is therefore closed to 2020.

Another epic Sturgeon fail, to try and hoodwink the Scottish people, her problem is that people can read; also people aren’t as stupid as her sycophants which she surrounds herself with to secure her position in the party.
