I promise this is the last posting on the Balkans! Hain and other Brit Nats are still chuffed they managed to think of 'the Balkanisation of Britain' all by themselves. Bless!
However, if they knew their European history and put aside their anti-Balkan racism, then they may be enlightened enough to notice there's another historic geopolitical concept which is more in line with what is happening in the 'UK' today. It's not Balkanisation, but Scandinavianisation.
A group of nations, sharing a defined geographic area, with shared customs, yes and language, which can have independence all round but which are mature enough to cooperate and pool sovereignty when needed.
Norway, Denmark, Sweden - and Finland, Faroe Islands and Iceland too, share a common, and yes, colonial , history. They have much in common but aren't the same - Norway is a NATO member whilst Sweden prefers other nations to fight against Nazis. Some are inside the EU, others not.
Norway didn't become independent until 1904 when it's separatist and nationalist government decided it wasn't too 'tiny' (in Hain's words) to leave Sweden - no doubt, there were Labour members in Norway saying that the country was too small/poor/thick to be independent.
Finland was also a Swedish province once but became independent (from Russia) in 1918 and Iceland became independent from Denmark in 1944. No wars, no race hate (please note CRE), no ban on Danish men marrying Swedish women, no plague of locusts.
So, as Welsh, English and Scottish nationalists, lets start talking calmly about the Scandinavnisation of Britain.
