To say the political establishment in the U.K. has been rocked to its foundations by last week's historic vote to leave the European Union is, for once, an understatement.The U.K. voted to withdraw from the EU by a narrow margin. Leave won the referendum with 51.9 percent of the vote, while Remain finished on 48.1 percent. Over the last 20 years, the foreign-born population of the U.K. has increased from around 3.8 million to 8.3 million.All three were leaders of the right-wing Conservative Party, which in the last 30 years has been bitterly divided over Britain's role in Europe.Nicola Sturgeon, who heads the ruling party in Scotland, where people voted to remain in the EU by a wide margin, has called for a second referendum on Scottish independence, enabling Scots to break away from the U.K. and remain in the EU.Somehow, the U.K. feels like a smaller nation this morning.
