Alex Salmons, the wife of Alex’s brother, Alex Salmon, has described her shock at her plan, which saw her forced to leave Scotland with her children and two adult sons.
Ms Salmons told the Scottish Parliament that her husband, who is of Scottish descent, had been told that the UK would be leaving in 2019.
“I was told I had to leave in 2019, but I don’t believe it,” she said.
“This is a plan for me and my children, which I have supported from the start.”
Ms Salmond has written to the Prime Minister, David Cameron, and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, urging them to reconsider their position on the UK leaving the European Union.
“My husband is of Irish descent and I think it is right that we should leave the EU.
We would have a better chance of being reunited in Ireland if we left the EU, so I would like to see the UK to come to the table,” she added.
Ms Sturgeon has said she is “disappointed” by the proposal, which she said could lead to “disaster” for the UK economy.
Ms Shorts said that the family had already been through “a very difficult time” in recent months, including the decision to move from their home in Kilbride, near Dundee, to Glasgow in August.
“Our family is in a very difficult position,” she told Parliament.
“It is just really difficult for us.”
The Salmonds’ plan for the family was first announced by the family’s lawyers on November 4, just three days after the Brexit vote.
Ms Schorts told the Parliament that the move had not been a “great idea” for Alex.
“The family have been trying to come up with a way to stay together, and it is difficult because the EU is such a huge market, so there is a huge difference in the economic climate,” she explained.
It’s very hard for a parent to go back to their home country, but for my family we are just really not sure.” “
As Alex’s father, I would have preferred that we were able to have our children stay here.
It’s very hard for a parent to go back to their home country, but for my family we are just really not sure.”
Ms Short said her family were “absolutely devastated” by Brexit.
“If there is any sort of threat to the safety of my family, and I am afraid that there will be no further information on the subject, we would be absolutely devastated,” she stressed.
Ms Schort also said the family would consider moving to England, but that they were “not going to leave here without Alex”. “
They have been so well-supported from the beginning, and if we are not able to make a decision on our own, that will be devastating for us and for our family.”
Ms Schort also said the family would consider moving to England, but that they were “not going to leave here without Alex”.
“The decision that we made to leave was based on our belief that we would have no choice, because the people who run the UK have said that they will keep the country in the EU,” she insisted.
And we are going to be working with our legal team to try to get some answers.”
