What are the implications of doing this? At the moment a UK citizen can simply move to Scotland almost as simply as they can move anywhere in the UK, but post-Brexit it could be a foreign country. Presumably there will be some kind of transitional period and immigrants from England would not be required to go home, but how it would affect immigration rights is anyone's guess.
I suppose it depends what the rUK does. If we keep freedom of movement then Scotland would be an EEA country for the purposes of SS. If not... It's very unclear. But perhaps someone can speculate at least, as the decision needs to be made fairly quickly I think.
It would be entirely consistent with the referendum results for the United Kingdom to grant independence to the kingdom of England. The immediate result of this grant would be that England (with Wales) would be outside the EU, while Scotland and Northern Ireland would remain in the EU, as the United Kingdom. (They might want to change the name again though, say to the United Kingdom of Scotland and Northern Ireland.)Petaltop wrote:You would have to wait until Scotland are allowed to join the EU, which would be in several years time. Scotland have a GDP that is worse than Greece and it's still rising and the EU have lost a net contributor in the UK leaving.
Why not include the Kingdom of Brighton...they voted to remain ...oh and the Kingdom of Tunbridge Wells Taking us back to the time pre-King Alfred the Great. I'm taking all this with a pinch of salt.Obie wrote:Perhaps the United Kingdom of London, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
One has to bear in mind that London played no part in this mess, and therefore it must not suffer. It has a huge population, and has more voters that participated than Northern Ireland and Scotland combined.
I can think of a London commodity trader and a (former) mayor who both played quite a significant role. Also there's no tradition of London being an independent kingdom or the like, unless you go back to the time of the first (failed) British war of independence, under Boadicea, and you think of London and St Albans, which she destroyed, as being the core of the Roman colony. St Albans also voted to remain.Obie wrote:One has to bear in mind that London played no part in this mess,
I agree. The Denmark model seems to be the best option going forward. That will allow different parts of the current UK-in-EU to have different statuses.ouflak1 wrote:If the UK negotiates a Denmark model, it may be possible for residents of Scotland to remain EU citizens. How that will work for non-Scottish residents, and Northern Irish, Welsh, and English residents/citizens is unknown. That may be something that Scotland itself negotiates while remaining members of the UK.
