And Scotland will be ignored again :-(


I think that would be hard to do Drew. I can understand why Scotland wants independence but struggle to see how it would work in you stayed in the EU while England and Wales left. I know it is historic treaty but Scotland signed the Treaty of Union way back when
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Treaty_of_Union
so they need permission from Westminster to hold another referendum - BJ ain't going to give it because it would break up the UK.

Northern Ireland, however, did not sign such a treaty so I suspect a United Ireland will happen first by means of a border poll, the reunification of Ireland - time will tell. I hope it is a peaceful transition.


Great Britain hasn't existed since 1801.

The whole canon of English Law was suspended in 1706. It was never re-introduced. Scots law continued.

One nation in a temporary political Union does NOT have to ask the other Nation for permission to hold a referendum on their future. That isn't any kind of Union. The settled will of the people decides. That's politics and the whole of the Law.
