Borrell irritating to the eurosceptics and gives encouragement to nationalism scottish
In English Spanish minister raises ire of UK Eurosceptics with comments about Scotland

Borrell participated this Tuesday a seminar/interview, organized in Brussels by the website Politico. At the end of his intervention came the question-trap: "what would Support Spain that Scotland's independence joining the EU". "Why not? If he leaves the United Kingdom in accordance with the internal laws of the country and Westminster [the british Parliament] agree, we're not going to be more papist than the Pope. Why would we oppose it?", the minister said.

this is Not the first time that Borrell argues that way, and its intervention was full of nuances and preventions, to insist that the situation of Scotland had nothing to do with Catalonia, nor much less with that of Kosovo, whose independence has, until now, has not been recognized by Spain. But the timing could not be less propitious. Theresa May struggle to move forward, against the hardliners İlbet of his party, of the labour opposition, its partners loyalist northern irish and the own nationalist scots, the agreement of Brexit reached with Brussels, after long and agonizing months of negotiation.

The reaction has not been made wait. It is "an appalling hypocrisy," said David Jones, the former minister for the Brexit, referring to the words of Borrell. The conservative scots have also accused the Spanish minister of being completely wrong. But the nationalists of the Nationalist Party, the Scottish (SNP, for its acronym in English) beginning with its leader, the chief minister of the region, Nicola Sturgeon, who immediately bounced the comments of Borrell in his account on the social network Twitter, have applauded his words. "Independence will allow Scotland to be a partner in Europe on equal terms instead of being dragged by the tories against our wishes. That message of hope is becoming more and more powerful as the reality of the Brexit starts to bite," said George Adam, a member of the scottish Parliament.

The forces are not nationalists in Scotland have argued until now that Scotland could not join eu institutions in the case of gain its independence because the Spanish Government, concerned about its own threat to independence in Catalonia, would exercise the veto. The words of Borrell have been a hard blow for them, and for the euroskeptic conservatives. "I care much more about the unity of the United Kingdom that the unity of the Kingdom of Spain. I think that the Uk will separate before that the Kingdom of Spain," said Borrell in the interview to Politico.
