‘UK could be DISBANDED if Scotland quits and replaced with confederation of states’

THE United Kingdom could be broken up into a ‘confederation’ of separate nations if Scotland quits the union following the Brexit vote, a leading Welsh politician has suggested.

Conservative AM David Melding, the Welsh Assembly’s erstwhile Deputy Presiding Officer, said his country risked becoming “a constitutional coracle on a tempestuous ocean” if First Minister Nicola Sturgeon succeeded in her mission to keep Scotland in the EU at the expense of Britain.

And he put forward a series of radical proposals to protect Welsh interests in such an event, including the establishment of an “Atlantic Islands Council” of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland to replace the disbanded UK.
