Split in the United Kingdom


The parliament of Scotland is raising the question of leaving the UK.

Brexit’s consequences

After the announcement of the results of the referendum on the withdrawal of the UK from the EU, legislators in Scotland initiated a discussion on the possibility of seceding from the kingdom. The main argument was the desire to remain in the EU. However, in fact, such a position can only be a cover for separatist tendencies.

London in turbulence

Now, any news about Brexit is directly reflected in the financial markets and the pound sterling rate. The latest information on the beginning of the exit process, scheduled for April 29, has led to a slight drop in the British currency.

In addition, Northern Ireland could also recall old grievances and, following Scotland, try to take a course of independence including possible reunification with the Republic of Ireland after a while.
