The future relationship between London and Brussels and its implications for security policy is a matter of great importance. How will Britain’s post-divorce security policy capacity be used?
It must be assumed that both parties have an interest in London’s continued participation in the policy of security cooperation with the European Union, even though the British have always given priority to NATO cooperation. And the European Union without the United Kingdom, especially if the union expanded south and east, would partly become a different European Union than it once was.
There are also good things Reasons to discuss the future of the British Union in more detail, which is greatly influenced by Brexit. Let us remember that while of the four EU countries, Wales and Wales with a relatively narrow majority, 52.5% voted to leave the EU, the other two members, Scotland with 62% and Northern Ireland with 56%, continued their membership. This has led to the SNP with renewed vigor the idea of a new independence referendum – or not.
In 2014, 55 per cent of Scots voted to stay, but now conditions have changed, says party leader and head of local government in Edinburgh, Nicola Sturgeon.
On the other hand, she claims, they did not know in 2014 that in 2016 there would be a referendum on whether to remain in the European Union – or not. On the one hand, the SNP is so strong in the December 12 election that the British House of Representatives now has 48 seats out of Scotland’s 59 total, and it is clear that the Conservatives are back in Scotland. We have not asked to be governed by the Conservatives in Westminster, says Sturgeon, and against our will to be taken out of the European Union.
