What can Boris Johnson do in the face of the risk of Scottish emancipation? A month after Breesit’s entry into force, this question already supports an army of advisers in Downing Street. And the British Prime Minister’s visit to Scotland at the end of January shows that he understood the danger: leaving the European Union is an earthquake that potentially threatens the unity of the United Kingdom. The “back control” that the Eurosceptics have so advocated in the name of English nationalism is going to be against the “Union Jack” feeding off Scottish nationalism.
Not only is the European Union abandoning the desire for independence north of Hadrian’s Wall (in a June 2016 referendum the Scots voted 62% against Brexit and a recent poll suggests they return one day 53% are in the dream of going), but the epidemic only confirms it ( Only 22% of Scots have a good opinion of the way Boris Johnson negotiated the health crisis in England , Where 61% of people think that Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon managed it well in Scotland, this capability is being decentralized). And the Legislative Assembly elections that are announced in Scotland in three months are likely to renew Edinburgh’s parliament, possibly with the declared victory of the Scottish National Party separatists, to put it into practice.
