Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Whether Wales of Scotland are prompted to make further progress on independence is a moot point. I'm not sure either country can be economically independent (InWales or ChrisCook would know better than me), although if the euro recovers in the next few months that could become an attractive alternative.

I'm curious whether England is viable without membership in the European Union, because the Tories don't exactly love Brussels and we don't have any experience of new members entering the EU through subtraction.  What makes you think that England will automatically get the EU membership?  Or would want it?

It would be pretty hilarious to watch Festung Brittania wither on the vine as tariff walls get thrown up around the country, and the City moves to Switzerland.

Is it really Scotland, which is pro-European and probably could get into the EU regardless, really they one that needs to be worried here?

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
