So Mommy (the UK) and Daddy (the EU) were joined in economic matrimony in 1973. After forty-three years of marriage, Mommy decides she isn’t happy anymore and is “strong and independent” enough to go it alone, but Mommy didn’t think about how her decision would individually affect each of her four children (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales). England and Wales seem like they’re happy to go with Mommy for the most part, but Scotland now wants to go and live with Daddy and Northern Ireland is thinking about moving in with his older sister Patricia (the Republic of Ireland), his Dad’s daughter from another relationship, who never was a fan of her stepmother, now the whole family is in disarray.
Maybe Mommy should have spent a bit longer thinking this through.
