Would it really be in the interests of the English Treasury to have across its land border a country with a currency devalued against the pound?
Goods produced there would undercut equivalent ones produced in England and would have a trading advantage in the English and other markets. The booming tourist industry of that other country would welcome visitors from England, staying in upmarket hotels and enjoying a shopping spree. And so on. Perhaps the English separatists should think again.
