Shifting Sands – The United Kingdom

Nov 13, 2019

The Prime Minister has ruled out a second Scottish independence vote because people were promised it was a ‘once-in-a-generation’ event in 2014. 

However the Financial Times now offers polling data suggesting an increase in the numbers believing the UK will not exist in its current form in 10 years.  The reduced confidence in the UK’s future in its current form is described as ‘striking’.  In Scotland  (which wishes to stay in the EU) parliamentary moves are afoot towards a second independence referendum, potentially heralding another constitutional crisis.

Brexit offers complexity and risk within the island of Ireland, and there is more talk of Welsh independence at some point in the future.
