Boris Johnson said that the United Kingdom will leave the European Union “without if’s or but’s”. This stance by the new Prime Minister might trigger the secession of Scotland and Northern Ireland from the UK. These two (2) countries voted to remain in the EU during the 2016 UK referendum, which resulted to the Brexit, which in turn resulted to the Scottish referendum. Following the withdrawal of the UK, the 27-member state bloc had strip former British colonies, Australia and Canada, from accessing the bloc’s financial market, a move that might hurt the United Kingdom.
