Brexit, the Continuing Disintegration of the EU and the UK Realignment to China & Russia
#3
Drew Phipps Wrote:I think that the Brexit is the perfect example of the power of the vote. There are usually entrenched financial and ideological interests on either side of any serious issue facing a nation. After a vote, there are winners and losers. In this case, Britain votes to leave the EU. Will Scotland now vote to leave Britain? Whether they do or don't, such a question is now in the collective hands of the Scots. Which, in my opinion, is exactly the correct place. The alternative to voting, not voting, seems a far more sure way to ensure that entrenched interests continue whatever their respective agendas dictate.

I feel confident that newly elected members of legislatures, even such an august body as the Russian Duma, would agree with me.


Yes, it has brought up some interesting things. The EU Republic of Ireland has offered to give citizenship recognition to the North which is stuck with the UK but voted to leave. Unification with the northern counties has always been the intention for the Republic. This will at least will give the residents of Northern Ireland access to the EU which is what they want but it will also create other problems for the UK as a union of its own. Same with the potential second Scottish vote for independence.
