GARRIAUD-MAYLAM, Joelle (Senior French Senator specialising in foreign policy)

She accused the UK and Spain of being behind Mr Borroso’s intervention on Scotland’s position in the EU following independence. Speaking in the French Senate, she said ” the threats formulated by Mr Barroso are inappropriate and the result of Spanish and English pressure. London is increasingly worried. They (the threats) are not credible. If Scotland votes for independence, it will stay within the European Union. It would be in England’s interest.” The French conservative is secretary of the senate’s Foreign Affairs, Defence and and Armed Forces commission and was delivering a special statement to parliament on Scotland and the EU.
