    It's simple;

    England and Wales want to leave the EU.

    Scotland and Northern Ireland don't.

    Scotland is reviewing the independence question, while Westminster is saying we can't.

    Nobody knows what's going on in Northern Ireland, even the people who live there.

              I think the next couple of years will be VERY interesting.
              If the UK loses Scotland over Brexit, it deserves to.
              If Scotland wants to secede from the UK, this should happen.
              Could be a bold and bright new future for Scotland, I think.

However, Scotland, Wales and Ireland appear to expect nothing so the Scottish, Welsh and Irish crew members can relax below decks if they like!)

                As the world's second most important polity the British Isles deserves its own forum.

                        There is, of course, only one way to find out.

                            I was born in England and can see why England wants to leave the EU in the short term.

                            OTOH, it is clear why N Ireland wants to stay in Europe. Eire is in Europe, and do both parties really want more border controls etc etc, after everything else was turning precipitately uphill.

                            As for Wales, I live here, am part of the community, and much of the funding for improving the infrastructure was from the EU. I really have no idea why the Welsh wanted to leave. Nor did many of the locals. I suspect it was because the huge rural community thought it would mean less red tape. Unfortunately England loves RT.

                            Scotland is more complicated. Unlike England and Wales, there has always been a real geographical divide between the two countries, which the Romans used to their advantage with Hadrian's Wall. It is this geographical and cultural divide that really differentiates modern Scotland and England.

                            It should be noted that Scottish Law and English Law is sometimes different, and in every case I've noticed the outcome, Scottish Law appears superior.
