Ian Hudghton (Greens/EFA) − This report deals with issues which lie at the very heart of the EU and it refers explicitly to Article 2 TEU. Article 2 in turn refers to freedom and democracy. The Edinburgh Agreement recently signed by the UK and Scottish Governments is founded on that democratic principle: that the people of Scotland have the right to decide upon Scotland's constitutional future. The Commission is bound too by Article 2 and Mr Barroso should bear this in mind when next pontificating on the subject of Scottish independence.
