“Scottish Referendum Precipitates UK Exit”

On Wikistrat Insights from the Wiki — Britain Exits the European Union: “Scottish Referendum Precipitates UK Exit”
...
The other question: How can Britain reinvent its role in global affairs after such a divorce?

Having lost Scotland and removed itself from the EU, Britain’s position on the world stage is inevitably and severely weakened. The U.K. can no longer weigh in on the direction of the EU.


The U.K. calculated that it would seek to re-balance toward the West by reinvigorating its “special relationship” with the United States, but the U.K. finds that the United States has little incentive to move from the status quo and the fragmentation of the U.K. and exit from the EU only serve to complicate its efforts to negotiate a Free Trade Agreement with the EU.

Britain tries to maintain its influence in global affairs by attempting to deepen its defense ties with France. Since 1998, both countries have deepened their ties, harmonized their agenda, developed common capabilities, and agreed to co-develop weapons programs. Britain sees a deepening of such endeavors as key to retaining some significant influence on the world stage. France, to an extent, concurs. However, a French objective of this cooperation was deeply linked to the European project – notably strengthening and rationalizing the European industrial base. Can this objective still be fulfilled if the U.K. is out of the EU?
Well like a lot of crowd sourcing things it all seems a bit fanciful. The Scots are unlikely to stop sucking on the English tax payer's tit and it over states Sweatie affection for Brussels, that's only typical of SNP supporters. If they did leave Dave probably has a safe majority in HMP and he can give the fingers to a minority party like UKIP.

However post-Brexit spurned by a decidedly displeased DC it's not entirely daft that London would seek to hold it's
traditional enemy Paris more closely. Perhaps consolidating military collaboration. After all this would also be a way of getting back in DC's good books. What's also possible is DC will increasingly turn to Paris.

Perhaps you should read the already very popular Scottish Independence threads, now into its second volume. All your questions answered.

....and much more! Read up on the benefits of a deep fried diet, how to wear kilt, find out if Irn Bru really is made from girders and if a Forfar bridie is really just a squashed Cornish pasty, where do all those English taxes really go and how to get smacked up for less than a fiver. Scottish Independence threads....you'll be glad you did!!

Dave will have a safe majority in HM Prison? What have you heard that we haven't?

You just have to check the polls, double digit lead for staying in The Union and that's with a slumped economy and a very unpopular government down in London winding back on the bru. They aren't getting the bint vote or older blokes, its wider base is sentimental neds. Only thing likely to change that is another big UK banking crash that might give their hard headed lassies empty chip pan related reasons to cut Blighty loose and some of the most risky institutions are Scottish anyway.
