"Nope - A referendum held in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the electorate voted to leave the EU."
Individually, these two voted to leave - they are both States in their own right, however Empire Loyalists might consider them.
If things continue where they are heading at present, it will all be academic - Great Britain will fragment
"They can ask for whatever they want, the timing is, by Treaty, set by the UK."
Let's see, shall we.
These are extraordinary circumstances.
We are witnessing an extremist right wing putsch in Europe at present.
Austria has recently narrowly avoided electing a neo-Fascist party into power, Mm Le Pen's party is on the rise in France, extremist groups in The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Italy have made calls to leave the E.U.   
Brexit contagion
The Brexits fought their campaign on a racist ticket; Farage has already been linked to the European far right, and Johnson has echoed Ukip's anti-emigrant stance - neither are to be trusted not to throw their lot in with the European extreme right.
"And that should be the concern of the UK how? "
Because Britain has just taken a step which has caused those price-rises ans whatever you personally might think of the Irish, Britain is responsible for whatever happens in Great Britain and ids duty bound to put right whatever damage has been done - that is what being part of Great Britain is all about me little Kluxer.
