The Scotts voted stay with the promise of federation with England (aka independence without all the FP responsibilities). This promise was never kept and the Scotts are staunchly pro-EU.

Now the UK (barley) votes to leave and the government and stock market has fallen in response. The Scotts are likely to push hard for a new independence vote and the new government is unlikely to last more than a year when the economic reality of Brexit (which the new government pushed for) comes down hard of the Bretons.

Thoughts?

And now Spain wants the Rock and the Irish (both sides) are talking unification. The UK is ****ed it seems.

Britain can sign a free trade deal with the EU and there would be no tariff barrier to British goods. Economically, Britain can survive Briexit but they need to carry passports when they travel to the Continent, which is the only downside. The problem is what to do with 2 million EU migrants who are already in the UK. You can't deport them immediately but new visa controls could be introduced in the next few months.

That assumes the EU agrees to free trade. The EU can afford to tell the Brits to go **** themselves as long as they have France and Germany. If the EU decides to punish them for their betrayal (likely if Scotland and N. Ireland bale on the UK to rejoin the EU) the UK is ****ed.
