So we all know the Northern Ireland border is a big issue for #brexit. But what about all the other British territories that don't make the headlines? Let's try to gather them up!

1) The Falklands, where 94% of fishing exports go to the EU single market:…
2) The Rock of Gibraltar, which voted remain but is firmly British Communities both sides of the border face 'economic disaster' if a deal cannot be reached:… Apparently just 'small' issues like the the border and tax yet to be agreed..
3) The Caribbean island of Anguilla relies on free movement:… Its tourism & postal industries depend on EU flights to the French & Dutch halves of neighboring St Martin. Citizens get medical treatment on St Martin. Third of its capital budget came from EU.
4) British Virgin Islands: alarmed at likely loss of British influence over EU (and by extension global) financial policy -particularly re tax havens. Worried an EU visa regime could make travel more difficult for residents. Anxious over loss of EU funds.…
5) Another UK-EU land border in Cyprus, where the UK has 2 Sovereign Base Areas (SBAs):… The only UK territories to use the Euro! Free movement rights of approx 15,000 Cypriots working inside the SBAs, as well as EU farming subsidies, are threatened.
6) UK Crown Dependencies:
-Jersey: warns of 'constitutional assaults' if UK tries to adjust tax status to get better deal…
-Guernsey: calls for independence if bad deal…
-Isle of Man: concern over hard brexit…
7) An interesting one: British Indian Ocean Territory, includes disputed Chago Islands. No direct brexit concern but UK did lose key UN vote against Mauritius over its status when most EU members abstained:… Likely due UK's loss of EU influence over brexit.
8) I can add others, but for now, I hope this shows there are far more territorial issues at stake than just #NI. Behind almost every territory is a British community increasingly alienated by the UK's approach to #brexit.
