Lol, Hammond has had to do a U-turn on the NI increase. Another multi-billion pound budget black hole then. Guess it'll be the disabled, children and low-income earners that'll be expected to cough up for that one too.
It's fucking ridiculous to be honest.

The UK is a member of the EU. People who live in Scotland are EU citizens through dint of their UK citizenship. Business that are based in Scotland have access to the EU markets because they are registered UK businesses.
As far as the EU is concerned, Scotland as an entity does not exist and has no current access or membership.
That isn't going to change no matter how hard Scots close their eyes, stick their fingers in their ears and wrap themselves up in the Saltire.

So with a Scottish independence you would essentially, Leave the EU (Because of Brexit), Leave the UK, attempt to rejoin the EU.
I say attempt because, reasons.

Mentioned in this BBC article that if someone breaks from a member state they have to reapply. So it's already been covered.
WoT EU: Mortalitis
I really have no idea and my common sense says Scotland needs to reapply, of course. But then again jurisdiction often heavily conflicts with comon sense, so there's that.
While Scotland would certainly need to reapply... being a current member means that laws, regulations and economy are all compliant to EU regs and reqs.

Looks like the Dutch Farage has failed according to exit polls. And in a welcome development a left wing party of communists has done rather well. Vodkas all round comrades.
