Jackson Carlaw told Express.co.uk that Nicola Sturgeon would attempt to get an independent Scotland back into the European Union without holding a referendum on membership of the trading bloc. The Scottish Tory added that European nations would think Scotland has “a bit to prove” before allowing the nation to join the bloc due to the current state of Scotland’s economy.

Mr Carlaw said: “I noticed that Nicola Sturgeon has said we would not even debate this, there would not be another referendum on it, she would just try and get us back in at any price and we would then have to accept whatever that price was.

“I do not think it would be light, as a very small nation, I think we would have to wait.

“This idea that it would happen at the click of a finger overnight, I think is fantasy politics.

“It would be much longer than that with us lying in limbo for quite some time in the interim.

He added: “I think other nations in Europe would look at it and think Scotland has got a bit to prove before it can join the European Union.”

Earlier this year Nicola Sturgeon’s decision to parade the European Union flag on Scottish public buildings was slammed by George Galloway.

He denounced the SNP leader’s plan to only fly the United Kingdom’s flag once a year on Remembrance Sunday in Scotland.

Mr Galloway added that only a “lifetime of a domestic rabbit” has passed since Scotland’s 2014 ‘once in a generation’ referendum on Scottish independence. 

Sturgeon to ‘lobby European governments’ says expert

He added: “I am not making any of this up, a European Union that Scotland was never a member of and will never be a member of, which the British people including 1 million Scots have already left.”

Conservative MP James Cleverly also mocked the move.

Mr Cleverly said: “It strikes me she’s really not good at listening to people when they make their voices known at referendam.

“In 2014 the people of Scotland by a majority said they wanted to remain part of the UK and the people of the UK by a majority said they wanted to leave the EU.”

He added: “Scotland is part of the UK, we are no longer part of the EU, that is the way the world actually is.”

A poll of more than 16,000 Express.co.uk readers showed overwhelming support to ban the SNP leader from flying the EU flag.

The survey was conducted on Friday, February 19, from 11.19am to 9.00pm, and asked 16,393 online readers, should Nicola Sturgeon be banned from flying the EU flag?

A massive 92 percent (15,070) of respondents voted “yes” and the remaining eight percent (1,323) of respondents voted “no”.
