Spain's opposition a 'blow to Salmond's EU claims'

After comments made by Mariano Rajoy, Prime Minister of Spain concerning an independent Scotland's membership of the EU, Better Together leader Alistair Darling said:

This is another blow to Alex Salmond's claims that nothing would change if we vote to go it alone. The Spanish Prime Minister has just made it clear that everything would change.

We now know what the position of the Spanish government would be if we vote for independence. This has created even more uncertainty.
