Back in the Disunited Kingdom of not so Great Britain & Northen Ireland for a few days...
With Brexit in full flow it is not too far a streatch to imagine a bunch of new countries coming to these green and pleasant islands soon. England & Wales together but alone in the world, Scotland & Northern Ireland independant and part of the Scandinavian bloc and remaining in the EU and the City State of London, more powerful than all of them but equally alone; surrounded as it would be by the English & Welsh country :-)
A fortified customs border between England and Scotland... a new Hadrians Wall? A road bridge connecting Scotland & N Ireland? A Walled London with a Tunnel from the City to the Channel Tunnel?
The Celtic Union, Waland (or Enges) and the European City State of London
The mind boggles...
