Now that the UK has "brexited" from the EU, will Ireland and Scotland declare their independence?


Do you think those countries could try?

    After so many years of constantly affirming that wants out of the EU, shouldn't England take responsibility of its choice?

    Looks like events bear you out, John. It's a 'balancing act', but France and Germany could expose themselves as bullies if they leaned too heavily on others who made overtures to vote 'leave'. Greece's best bet would be in returning to the Drachma.

    Scotland couldn't go its own way. Separate application for EU membership wouldn't wear well with the French and Germans who'd see it as another 'Greece'. Edinburgh's assembly knows their economy couldn't stand outside the UK, Ulster wouldn't want to.

    Since I wrote this, the Austrian premier has said the UK 'must be punished' for wanting to leave the EU'.

    The British Army stopped the Russians from occupying half Austria in 1945, beyond Spielfeld Strass, the agreed limit. Does he even know that?

    Where did you hear these figures for percentage turnout and vote cast requirements? That isn't true in this referendum.

    N. Ireland do not want independence. The majority there are far more interested in maintaining union with the UK than the EU
