A Federalist Union might be the only way to save the United Kingdom in Britain. Where the states there that currently flirting with independence from Britain or in North Ireland's case. Flirting with uniting with the Republic of Ireland, where they currently share the same island. But where two countries control parts of it. Because these states clearly want more freedom and autonomy over their own domestic affairs. Instead of London trying to govern the entire country with a unitary government.
With a Federalist Union or Republic, the British states for lack of a better term. On the British isles would have the autonomy to govern their own domestic affairs. Leaving foreign policy, national security, homeland security, as well as interstate commerce and law enforcement. Up to the the British Federal Government under this system. Instead of having a unitary government with most of the power in.
Economically as well as when it comes to national security and foreign policy. Each of these states and ethnic groups. The English, Scottish, Welch and the Irish in North Ireland. Are better off being part of a United Britain but politically the current political structure doesn't work very well. Even Socialists in each of these states would like to see more local and state control over their own affairs. And a Federalist system would still protect the Socialist state in Britain. But give the states more freedom and flexibility to govern the Socialist systems in their own states.
