However the resultant remaining united Celtic nation is still debating its proposed new official name.
The Scots dislike the name Scwareland, claiming that it is far too unhip and sounds like something invented by Terry Pratchett. The Welsh, meanwhile, object equally strongly to the name Scwireland, suggesting that it sounds more like a collection of Olde English Shire Counties.
The population of Northern Ireland is also, surprisingly, divided.
The Isle of Man is apparently happy to be become the capital of the new Celtic nation for reasons of obvious geographical convenience, whereas Guernsey, Jersey and the Scilly Isles want to remain constitutionally separate from England as distinct from constitutionally separate from Scwareland, Scwireland or whatever.
The Isle of Wight is apparently content to remain totally detached from all the rest of the former United Kingdom, and to continue living in its own separate century.
Nigel Farage issued a statement saying "Well that's buggered UKIP - we'll have to find a new name now" and unofficial sources have quoted the Queen as saying "Oh for goodness sake, this reconstituted constitution malarky is doing ones head in. Sod the lot of 'em - let Charlie Boy sort it out; it will give him something to do. I'm orf the the Cayamn Islands with ones accountant. God bless ones Empire."
