Skipjack, re: Secession from EU.
Where I live, folks take the topic of secession seriously, what with the 150th anniversary of the local "recent unpleasantness" coming up. I hope secession from the EU is handled less bloodily than the US attempt.
A few years ago, idiots in California talked about secession from the USA. My response was to let them. Hmmm...
I'm trying to think of a more modern example of secession from a large federated political organization and the only thing that comes to mind is the break-up of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
Sorry it took so long to respond, I was working on stuff for another thread.
