United Kingdom Hoping For Brighter Future For All After Independence

Vessels such as HMS Ark Royal are a thing of the past
Scotland choosing independence is likened to Scotland leaving the UK (“Swinney takes flak over Navy shipbuilding claim”, The Herald, June 8).

As the United Kingdom is made up of only two Kingdoms, Scotland and England, plus a Province and a Principality (Northern Ireland and Wales), surely it is self-evident that on Scotland’s departure, there will be no UK, or United Kingdom of Great Britain. Instead there will be the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland.

Almost certainly the Principality and Province will have to be consulted on their relationship with the two Kingdoms and with each other. It is to be hoped that, for them too, the future could be brighter than the past.
