Last week, #Britain voted to leave the European Union. Well, at least part of it did
#Scotland and Northern #Ireland voted to remain, and are now might try to block the vote — or leave the #UK
On top of that, it appears Londoners are demanding independence from Britain, noting that they, too, voted to remain in the E.U. If such a scenario actually played out, as unlikely as it is, a post-#Brexit Britain would simply be a rump state of Wales and England, missing its enormous capital city
And, in the spirit of the now-infamous “Brexit” portmanteau, it could be called “Wangland” (“Engles” might be more palatable) Again, while it’s unlikely this scenario could play out, it’s worth imagining what it would look like — not only for what it could say about some unlikely future state, but also what it may say about the very real situation Britain finds itself in
