The whole Brexit process was not handled properly. This was a major referendum to leave the EU after 40+ years where all aspects of our lives are intertwined with the rest of the EU, so it was never going to be an easy "stay or leave vote" to be decided by a simple majority. For such importance, asking for a 2/3rd majority from the whole of the UK would have made much more sense. Each member of the United Kingdom should have voted separately first with a simple majority if they wanted to stay or leave the EU with the options. If one state voted to stay in the EU but the 2/3rds majority of the UK wanted to leave, then states which voted to stay can then have a vote to leave the UK or stay. The states which voted to stay but a simple majority already voted to leave, now the states voted to stay MUST be allowed to decide with a simple majority if they want to remain in the UK or not. This would be a fair way to solve the whole Brexit problem. In the end we shall see how many states will stay with the UK and how many go on their own way and their decisions needs to be respected no matter how futile it may be for the survival of the United Kingdom as we know it. Opening a Pandora's box can be very dangerous sometimes, and this may be just one of those times with Brexit.
