Why Nicola Sturgeon's secret bid to join EU with independent Scotland will FAIL

The nations have long been in a bid to join the bloc, and the bureaucracy of enlargement has become something of a laughing matter among European critics.

For example, accession talks with North Macedonia and Albania — which have already received a green light from Brussels — are being blocked primarily by Bulgaria, a country that hosted its own Western Balkans summit in 2018.

Now, Bulgaria is holding up Macedonia’s membership due to disputes over history and language, which it insists must first be resolved.

And in 2020, French President Emmanuel Macron has sharply criticized the EU enlargement process and blocked the opening of membership talks for Albania and North Macedonia at a summit last year.
