Sounded more like common sense to me.
It's a soft Indy though, a hard Indy would be none of that .
Its a bit odd that you say those who talk of soft Brexit are stupid as it wont happen but you consider an Indy Scotland under the SNP's previous proposals as common sense. You once again seem to argue against your own points, you want another pop at a referendum and see a hard Brexit as the way to do it yet you want to also join the EU (otherwise whats the point in using Brexit as an excuse) but continue to keep the aforementioned 'common sense' links with the rUK. You do not seem to realise that any hard Brexit measures agreed with the UK will also apply to any relationship between a future Indy Scotland and the UK if 'we' join the EU. Forget about free movement of trade and people across the border as Scotland would have to enforce the border as part of Schengen and impose any import duty the same as any other EU country does with those not in the EEA.
An Indy Scotland in the EU after a hard Brexit would see trade and movement across the Scottish/English border restricted. Our biggest trading partner is the rUK but you would throw that away for the EU?
