Before Sturgeon promises she should ensure if the EU want an independent Scotland and even if Scotland meets the EU criteria.
Should there be a second referendum then it will need more input than the previous referendum for they will need a different currency, which could well be the Euro. Their independence could also be short lived if the EU have their own way and create a federal Europe.
Brexit is just the current excuse for pushing for independence and if she fails this time look forward to a third referendum when she or the SNP see fit.
Frexit, Grexit or jitters about Quitaly – existential threats to the euro are remote but investors are still looking for clever ways to protect themselves against the risk of a euro dropout.
Pricing in arcane reaches of bond markets and elsewhere shows investors are not taking chances.

The major difference between the UK and the rest of the EU with regards to health care is that the UK system is not geared to request the EHIC card. Also in the rest of the EU all health care is dependent on the EHIC card, whereas in the UK does this include Primary Care, contacting GPs, will GP surgeries even ask to see an EHIC card, let alone will hospitals.
The UK Health Care system is set up to be fleeced by non-UK citizens because of our reluctance to ask the right questions.
So is it even non-UK citizens not willing to pay, but ourselves by not asking the right questions, for if you do not ask, you will not get.
The process of exiting the European Union (EU) could worsen the social care crisis if the UK government does not protect access to personal assistants (PAs) from EU countries, disabled peers have warned. They told a work and pensions minister that uncertainty over the “Brexit” negotiations with fellow EU members was leading to “terrible uncertainty” among the thousands of disabled people whose PAs are citizens of other EU countries. But peers heard that there was not a single mention of disabled people or disability in the government’s white paper on Brexit. The disabled crossbench peer Baroness Campbell told the Lords debate on the impact of Brexit on disabled people – secured by the Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Scott – that she had employed PAs from at least 10 EU countries in the last 25 years.

Is Hunt real, how is Brexit to blame. The persons who appear to be creating Heath Tourism are not from Europe so any package is not affected whether Brexit is enacted or not.
Within Europe we have reciprocal arrangements to claim back health cost, as non-UK European countries do claim back from the UK, so why can the UK not do the same.
Should we ever enact Brexit and do eventual withdraw from the EU, then all European countries will be the same as any non-UK countries outside Europe, assuming we do not renegotiate reciprocal arrangements. Currently there are nine European countries not in the EU, so when we are mentioning EU and Europe they are not one of the same as all EU countries are in Europe, but not all Europe is in the EU and Brexit purely means leaving the EU and not Europe.
