All is not coming up roses

Spain and Belgium would likely vote No on Scottish membership in the EU.  Spain "will not want to create the precedent" of a region "deciding to leave and join the EU in their own right" given the secessionist movements in Catalonia and the Basque Country." and Belgium is "extremely worried ... a Scottish precedent would really encourage the now very rich region of Flanders to secede from the Kingdom", adding: "This would impoverish Belgium." Telegraph

It also calls into question whether other countries with secessionist movements like Italy and Romania would vote in favor.

Meanwhile the Mayor of Calais Natacha Bouchart and the President of the Hauts-de-France region Xaviar Bertrand want to let the migrants through the Chunnel. The Sun
