For quite some time Scotland has been wanting to leave the UK, and this was made clear as day through Scottish Secretary of State David Mundell, who constantly stressed the importance of Scotland to the UK, who did not display any acknowledgment for Scotland’s claims.
Just as the UK previously did for the EU, Scotland held a referendum for leaving the UK. The results were 51.2% to 48.8% in favour of leaving the UK, however, Scotland remains unsure of how exactly they will do so.
Unfortunately, the people of Britain didn’t take the news of Scotland’s leave well, and expressed their frustration through public destructiveness.
Due to the apathetic nature of the surrounding nations, Scotland was forced to pass their own resolution “Raindrop, Drop Top, We Have a Free Scot.” Instead of requiring the usual two-thirds majority in order for a resolution to pass, Scotland was given permission to leave the UK if all EU members voted unanimously.
“Raindrop, Drop Top, We Have a Free Scot” passed, therefore allowing Scotland to leave the UK and become an independent nation apart of the EU. Scotland will also adopt the euro to replace the pound.
This caused chaos to break loose within the streets of London. Originally the UK and EU had completely different ideas on immigration and refugees. Due to this dispute between the two sides, the UK needed 17 votes as the two-thirds majority in order to pass their resolutions.
By Scotland switching over to vote with the EU, the UK lost their assurance of obtaining the two-thirds majority. The British people were absolutely outraged.
Boycotting, and flames erupted on the streets within London. To make matters worse for Britain, the pound was dramatically plummeting.
However, all of this despair and anger proved to be pointless as the UK was still able to hold enough power over the EU.
In the end, there was a merge of resolutions between the UK and EU, and Scotland slowly became irrelevant to the situation.
The UK realized that if everyone from the UK voted for their own resolution, they would be able to maintain a majority. Thereafter two more delegates joined the delegation for the EU’s side lessening the difference of power between the two sides even further. Britain’s anger towards Scotland faded and all was well between the two nations.
Mundell does not wish for the EU and UK to take Scotland’s referendum personally and stated, “We still want the UK to be friends with the Union.”
