We have always said Brexit could lead to the break-up of the UK, not just the EU. As the Westminster vote to Withdraw from the EU moves towards the House of Lords for ratification in the next couple of weeks, here’s a little concert to stimulate thoughts on what Scotland and Northern Ireland are going to do next.
Overture: The Brexit vote was won by appealing to a mish-mash of historical myths
Requiem: the EU Anthem as Westminster voted against all amendments to the EU Withdrawal Bill.
Comment: What a Celtic gesture of defiance at the moment of defeat for EU nationals in the UK, Scottish requests for compromise in the Brexit approach and Westminster’s refusal to safeguard the Good Friday Agreement!
Cantata: Northern Ireland
Coda: For Scotland and Northern Ireland
Ritornello: We’re gonna stay in the EU anyway!
