There is no denying that the Brexit vote has brought a wave of uncertainty in an already tumultuous time. From Westminster, we hear the cry that ‘Brexit means Brexit’, a phrase which is devoid of any real semantic meaning; while from the tabloids, we are given a taster of the early effects of Brexit on our favourite products – a potential marmageddon or toblerone doom. Amidst sensationalist headlines, and political claims to ‘take back our country’, we might be left wondering: whose country are we taking back? After all, the United Kingdom is made up of four nations, who have varying stances on the referendum and on the potential outcome of Article 50 negotiations.
