Scottish campaign(s)

There appear to be two main campaigns in Scotland: Voteleave and leave.eu. There was a third “GO” which is now part of leave.eu.

The organisation in Scotland is focused on local areas which from what I can see all belong to both campaigns.

So the best place to start is to look at what local groups exist and try to contact them direct (see e.g. https://leave.eu/en/get-involved#local-groups)

In the years 2007 to 2013 Scotland contributed £7.7 Billion to the EU via the UK and received back in total £6 Billion, so we would appear to also be net contributors to the EU via our membership of the United Kingdom.
