Your choice: Brexit or the Union

It is high time Brexiteers admitted they must either choose Brexit, or the preservation of the UK, but they cannot have both, says John Stevens.

There is a spectre haunting Brexit: the spectre of the break-up of the United Kingdom. All the powers of the Brexiteers have entered into an unholy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage, Jeremy Corbyn and Jeremy Hunt, Steve Baker and Seamus Milne. In vain. For it is becoming daily more apparent that if Brexit is to be delivered for England, it will be for England alone.
