None of this would have happened if not for Brexit. Scotland would have still been part of the EU in peace. But that’s not the case now. The real question is: can Scotland join the EU as an independent country? If you’re still unsure about it, here are the reasons why it’s a good idea for you to bet on Scotland to join the EU.
Brexit is what the majority of the Scots don’t want. As is shown in the 2016 vote, 62% of Scottish people wanted to remain in the EU. Brexit still happened anyway from the total votes in the UK supporting the EU divorce.
We can’t deny the fact that Scotland is part of the UK including England, Wales and Northern Ireland. That means Scotland has to be independent first before it can apply to join the EU, under Article 49 of the Lisbon Treaty on European Union. Online betting sites in UK estimate the odds for Scotland to join the EU before 2021 at 5/1. You can rest assured and bet on Scotland to join the EU as plans have already been discussed.
Second Referendum Is Coming Up
According to UK online gambling news, the Scottish government is pushing for a second Scottish Independence Referendum (6/5) in autumn 2018 or spring 2019. The decision hasn’t been confirmed yet. But we can wait for an announcement from First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon and leader of Scottish National Party or SNP soon.
In an interview, ex-First Minister of Scotland and SNP Leader Alexander Salmond sounded his opinion “I think the potential independence vote is 60%-ish. It could be higher.” The SNP has always supported an independent Scotland and EU merger. If the referendum succeeds, you can bet on Scotland to join the EU with confidence!
Scotland’s Perks of Joining the EU
Being part of the EU brings many benefits to Scotland. In numbers, it represents around 300,000 jobs, access to 500 million customers and 42% of exports in Scotland. This would not have been without freedom of trade and movement which the EU enables. Now that you know what Scotland has to gain, you should definitely bet on Scotland to join the EU. After all, the aim of any country is to improve its economy and being part of the EU is attractive for investors.
Let’s bet on Scotland to join the EU!
The odds for Scotland to join the EU by the end of 2021 are at 5/1 according to online gambling sites in the UK. The EU has no reason to reject Scotland’s application if it came through. On the up side, it would send a positive signal to the rest of the world that the EU has strength. So what are you waiting for? Head to Unibet Sportsbook and bet on Scotland to join the EU now!
