The UK could be handed a "Get out of jail free" card by the Scots.
A senior Scots constitutional lawyer has suggested that "Scottish independence could see the UK kicked out of the European Union".
Rejoining would then require a new referendum (which would likely be lost?) and if we did rejoin we'd likely lose our huge EU payments discount.
One can hope that the Scots might do us a favour, but I suspect the EU would fudge things so they didn't ... so we'll still need an acrobatic display of pig avionics as well.
Heresy Corner has a fuller report on the speculations.
