8 months on, and it’s clearer than ever that a “No Plan” No Deal Brexit will lead to Scotland’s division and Ireland’s union. It will be hard to keep Ireland divided when customs and regulations will be kept aligned north and south, with GB diverging....
... meanwhile the Scots will say that they have had enough of London’s lunacy, and see #indyref2 as the path back to the EU membership that they never wanted to lose. Ironically a Scotland-England border would be easier than a border in Ireland.
How hard would England & Wales be hit by the fall in taxation from the loss of two countries from the union?
Turns out the Government already publish tax revenues broken down by country. Ireland and Scotland account for approx 10% of tax revenues.

Scotland provide their own breakdown with and without North Sea oil revenues. Spoiler alert: it's a lot more than the UK's EU membership fee.
