Cornwall claims it was told EU Grants and subsidies would be safe and continue ......eh? how did they think that would work.
Pound down to low low levels Stockmarket at lowest since 1985. Thomas Cook halts Currency sales (they didnt even do that during 2 World Wars)
When smaller states like Switzerland (or Norway) are pointed to as examples of proximite but functioning and cooperative non-EU nations, it is also worth mentioning their low populations afford the creation of more unified federations with quite consistent political will. This seems more just because it is so straight forward: national politics that stem from closeness of culture (and so in part geography), rather then very abstract and homogenising nation state ideology covering huge expanses and many subsets of the "same" people. Low population density in Norway possibly diffuses counter-national sentiment as in Australia. What is interesting to note is the diversity that proliferates under the hubris of a central state (I'm sure those leaving the EU will recognise that sentiment?) - and the resistance to it - another couple examples would be a strong desire for independence in the Pacific north west and the central (French-speaking) continent which subsumes under the clearly still more powerful idea of The United States or Canada. What is also clear is that Scotland has long illustrated it is at odds with the so-called union and once again deserves its say on matters, i.e. being part of that union. Fortunately, they were prudent enough to envisage such a possibility as the catastrophe that just unfolded... as much as I understand their drive for independence, being part of the European Union is economically more desirable... which now drives new calls for independence. 😀
