    Agreed, then Cornwall should become independent, London should also declare independence and be renamed to reflect its diversity. We should split the country down the old model of the Saxons with the old kingdoms.

    Or we could just stop being muppets.

    You know England is 84% of the U.K. Population right?
    Yep. So say if 51% of England voted out but were kept in by a strong performance for IN in the Celtic regions.

    You know this is a uk wide vote and doesn't need permission from all four nations?

    Saying Scotland should vote to leave after this (which needs parliaments permission to even have that vote which won't happen) is like saying after a remain vote I would have voted out if I had known we were going to take our share of Syrian migrants in the eu.

    The point is both are events that aren't unlikely and can be easily foreseen

    Are you saying that scotland should have expected the tories or ukip to have won the GE and thus make a referendum hugely likely?

    Nobody, least of all Cameron expected he would have a majority which is why he offered a referendum thinking he could give it up in a coalition again.

    I'm saying that the sentiment amongst the population was clear at the time of the referendum

    Not by such a huge margin though and they have since become near enough a one party state.

    When a large section of the population wants something they get it, that's how politics works.

    Ergo you have a referendum on the eu and it's the same reason they got one in Scotland too

    Given the nature of the issue, you'd probably need two more referendums - one on leaving the UK, and one to confirm leaving the EU.

    That'll be pretty weird because England actually Unites Scotland and Wales and that.
    Wtf are you on about?
