The Mid Scotland and Fife Question

Here's another letter about the dreadful common fisheries policy.

Tory MSP Ted Brocklebank writes that:

At least the Tories have now pledged to take Britain out of the CFP when it returns to government at Westminster. The SNP‘s similar policy is unachievable, given that it will never be in power at Westminster and that its goal of an independent Scotland seems unlikely to happen.
That's all very well Mr Brocklebank, but please answer this question:
What happens when the EU says "No"? If the only way to repatriate our fishing grounds is to leave the EU, will you favour that policy?
The voters would like to know.
