The reverse Greenland - squaring the NI-EU circle?

In the immediate aftermath of Thursday's result, one Scottish unionist author has posited the situation in Denmark as a possible solution to the Scottish and NI endorsements of Remain. The Kingdom of Denmark comprises mainland Denmark, Greenland and the Faeroe Islands, of which only the first-named is currently an EU member. Adam Ramsey suggests that both Scotland and Northern Ireland should pursue a "reverse Greenland" strategy, enabling them to remain both in the EU and UK. It seems unlikely that the Scots would accept such a proposal, unless polling suggests that Indyref 2 would be defeated, but it may be the ideal solution to the North's position, given that unionists will never approve a border poll.

You dont have to go to Greenland. The Isle of Man, Jersey and guernsey are all non-UK and non-EU. People from there have no rights of work or free movement and they have specially market passports to indicate that.

England and Wales could leave the UK and thus the EU. London could have special status.

Could... but it wont happen. The 27 are showing the UK to the door.
