Will Scottland, Nothern Ireland and Wales really leave the UK if Brexit happens?
They talked about it on the news

They have NO choice they are all part of the UK. Brexit is not just for England.

They can only leave the UK if given permission....they are part of the UK whether they like it or not and have to abide by what the UK states......

Scotland - fairly likely, moving to very likely if the UK crashes out of the EU without a leave deal.
NI - much the same as Scotland, although the thought of eventually becoming part of the Republic might reduce the attractiveness of the idea a little.
Wales - not very likely, the Welsh voted overall to leave the EU so I think they'd be more likely to remain in England's toxic embrace.

They can talk all they like, but in 6 months without all the money england gives them, and parliament, they would be broke.

Scotland are the only ones currently expected to do so (and it would be subject to a second independence referendum)

Northern Ireland is an artificial statelet which will probably find some kind of accommodation with the rest of Ireland and get to remain a virtual part of the EU. Scotland - it's a very different country already so leaving the UK would work for them. Wales, I doubt it.

Unlikely, they would have to apply for EU membership and that could take years.

Of course not, they like English money too much. Those two-bit politicians are like all the rest, whining in order to get more of what they demand. None of those countries could exist without being subsidised by English tax payers.

No, and what's this "if" nonsense?
