Comment

Although the geography of the vote leading to the Brexit victory (United Kingdom’s exit from the EU) is a delicate issue, it is nevertheless clear that Scotland – historically pro-European – and Greater London – which gains part of its wealth from financial activities – unambiguously voted to remain in the EU. The same is true for most of the urban centers, with the exception of Birmingham. On the other hand, the central and central-eastern regions, which are rural and poorer, had more votes for Brexit. Northern Ireland, despite the contrasting East/West situation, voted overall to remain in the EU.
