You heard it here first.
The oblivious English-nationalist, Russian-abetted Brexiteers with their new charlatan Prime Minister, charging forward in a bull-in-china-shop manner, disregarding Irish peace, may yet see events proceed in a way they had not anticipated.
Here is one possible scenario.
After Boris plows through with his daft intention to exit the EU with no agreement in place, the Scots have had enough.
Over the next three years, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, and perhaps Wales, have no choice but to form a confederation under democratic sovereignty to join the EU on their own. Furthermore, the EU would have a great incentive to allow each to enter as a separate sovereign.
Great job, Boris.
But seriously, this could be one of the few ways that the Northern Irish protestants can have their anxieties about joining the Republic ended: with the existence of such a democratic confederation with special entry privileges of four separate sovereigns within the EU, they would no longer have to be concerned about Irish nationalism taking its historic harsh form any time soon or for the foreseeable future.
Irish peace will thereby be deftly preserved.
As for both Scotland and Northern Ireland, they will be able to radically diminish the economic chaos about to be thrust upon them by being in involuntarily booted from the open market and open customs and border system of the EU by Brexit, which they strongly voted against. The same goes for Wales.
This is a solution to Scotland and Ireland’s dilemma that could serve all of these western European republics well.
An idea well worth considering.
