Great Britain chooses to dismantle itself
The European Union referendum results are out. Great Britain has decided it doesn’t want to stay within the European Union (EU).
The ‘Leave’ camp got 17.4 million votes or 51.9% of the total votes.
The problems, however, have just begun for the UK.
Soon after the outcome of the vote became clear, Nicola Sturgen, the first minister of Scotland came out and said that the country wants to stay within the EU.
Scotland, earlier had held its own referendum and decided to stay with Great Britain which was part of the EU back then.
Even Northern Ireland is now threatening a referendum as it intends to stay a part of the EU.
Scotland and Northern Ireland’s votes stood at 62% and 55.7% respectively to remain in the EU in today’s historic referendum.
Northern Ireland’s largest nationalist party Sinn Fein also told Reuters that they would like a broader poll as they feel Britain has not acted in their interest by voting out of the union.
