Thousands of citizens have signed a petition calling for northern England to become part of Scotland, which does not hide its intentions of secession from the United Kingdom in the near future.

The claim highlights the historical links between these places, recalling that the current government has for years promised but failed to live up to its promise to invest in northern England, whose economic performance is significantly lower than in the southern UK.

A petition with 28,000 signatures

A petition published last week calls for northern England to separate itself from „South with London in the center“ and join the newly emerging Scotland. With more affinities, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool,  Newcastle and other cities in the region could be subordinate to the Scottish capital Edinburgh than London

A petition with (at the time of writing) 28,000 signatures has called for a redrawing of the English border.

Most of them came after Thursday, when the UK parliamentary elections were won by conservatives promising to implement Brexit as soon as possible.

After the election, of course, Scotland has also strengthened its position on independence, which should be made easier to implement.

Menthol cigarettes

Experts say that mint and other flavors make smoking more attractive to novice smokers, this is the reason why all mint cigarettes will be banned in Britain.  Prohibition will apply to mint cigarettes, tobacco and ‘thin’ cigarettes. This year under a new law coming into force in May.

Tobacco smoking in the United Kingdom
