Govt makes case for Union

Govt makes case for Union
An independent Scotland would be forced to renegotiate thousands of treaties, including its membership of the EU and the UN, legal experts have warned.

The Government has disclosed the legal advice as it begins setting out the case for the Union ahead of the 2014 independence referendum.

Scottish Secretary Michael Moore said the findings were a "serious reality check" for the independence campaign.

But Scotland's Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has dismissed the review, and accused the UK government of "incredible arrogance".

"These will be matters that will be settled not by law but negotiation and agreement," she told the BBC's Today programme.

"If the UK Government is really saying that they would, in the event of a Yes vote, go out of their way to make life difficult for Scotland, not only is that arrogant but it will also put themselves in a position where they will be opposing their own interests. It's ridiculous."
