A Scottish SNP MEP today urged European leaders to leave a light on so an independent Scotland can find a way home to the EU.
The SNPs Alyn Smith encouraged lawmakers in Strasbourg to support a separate Scottish state in what is likely to be his final speech in the European Parliament.
What a sad place we are in on Brexit , he told MEPs. What a tragedy. So many issues we should be working on together utterly distracted by a self-inflicted disaster. Entirely because the UK even at this last hour hasnt made a decision on what it actually wants.
Smith urged the parliament not to close the doors on those in Britain who want to remain in the EU.
He said: There are lots of us in Scotland and elsewhere across the UK working hard to turn this round, to serve our citizens, to remain within this family of nations.
Smith added that he understood MEPs had to respect the UK constitution but stressed that for Scotland the best option for staying in Europe might be as an independent nation.
In Scotland if we are removed against our family of nations against our will, against our clearly democratically expressed view, if we are removed against our will independence will be our only route back. collegues, I am not asking you to solve our domestic discussions. I am asking you to leave a light on so that we can find our way home.

They should check the transporter system.
You got your vote mate. You made your choices be it Scotland remaining in the UK knowing Brexit was a possibility, or the Brexit vote itself. Your side lost. Deal with it.
All this blue face crap and farting in your general direction stuff. They had their shot and they blew it. I thought the Scots were more independent.

Truly.delicious irony. They want to be independent so they can become slaves of the EU.

Nah, they are a bunch of weenies over there. All the cool independent Scots are here in America. (Great-Grandson of a ‘45er/Jacobite)
No country is a slave to the EU. Its a confederation of states
