The map above shows the counties of Great Britain (not including Northern Ireland) that voted to remain in the EU following the UK’s referendum on 23 June 2016 as physical islands; islands of remain in the Brexit Sea.
The new post-Brexit Isles would include the island of London (minus Hillingdon, Sutton, Bexley, Barking and Dagenham, and Havering) but which would also include Oxford, Cambridge, Reading and Brighton, the island of Cardiff & Bristol, Isles of Scilly, island of Leicester, island of Manchester, island of Liverpool, island of Leeds & York, Newcastle-on-the-Sea and of course the largest island of all, Scotland.

I can’t help but wonder how different history would have been if this was the actually map of the British Isles. Would there have been a Gaelic Empire instead of the British Empire or would France have filled that role?
Tom Blakeman says
Great image – Is it possible to purchase a poster/print of this work?
Isles of Scilly look a bit large?
