"Recent polls show consistent support among Scots for leaving Great Britain."

I hope they do, but it will cost them so I suspect they won't. Far better to have the British Gov bailing them out.

I, for one, am not looking forward to a whole slew of new words entering the English lecicon.

sexit (or is it scexit?)

nexit

Even so, surveys show that Great Britain is straining at the seams.

Like Scotland, Northern Ireland voted against Brexit. In the past year, polls have shown solid support in Northern Ireland for reuniting with the Republic of Ireland, which is part of the EU.

Discontent is even rising in Wales. A YouGov poll in October found nearly 1 in 4 people would vote for Welsh independence, up by 8% since 2016.

If the NI politicians want a referendum, then they can have one. All they need is evidence that a majority of citizens are in favour of putting the question. The UK Gov can't prevent it. It's up to the people and politicians of NI.  All the bits of the UK currently run most of their internal affairs, have their own parliaments and the Scots even have tax-raising powers. 

How do the brits pronounce sexit, anyway?

And finally, on Christmas Eve, the deal has been done. Of course we don't know what's in the deal, yet. The fishermen are saying they're not happy, but since they don't have enough boats to take up the slack as the EU reduces its catch, they may be complaining to persuade the Gov to provide a few nice new shiny trawlers for them. We shall see.

The United Kingdom exits the European Union's orbit on Thursday, turning its back on a tempestuous 48-year liaison with the European project for an uncertain Brexit future that will shape the fortunes of its people for generations to come.

We will shape our own future. The EU will shape its future. Can't argue with that.
