    Places in Europe where there are separatist movements:

    It's hard to read the map to see what these all are; I suspect this Wiki article covers them all (and includes a map that looks like the same map, though with a different URL):

    I had no idea that other than the Scotland, Wales, etc., there are about a half-dozen other groups in the British Isles.

    The wiki article coughed up my word for the day: retrocession

    It seems to me that every two-bit politician in the world fancies him/herself the rightful leader of a nation. Now the European Union has seemingly provided a framework to make that dream come true for European politicians. If Scotland succeeds in both separating from the UK and joining the EU, there will be a flood of similar attempts over the next decade. Therefore, I'd expect to see strong resistence to admitting an independent Scotland into the EU without a great deal of pain from every current EU member with at least one active separatist movements.
