The European Union (EU) referendum result has led to the unfolding of a domestic constitutional drama in the United Kingdom, which on its current trajectory could lead to its break-up. Written just prior to the anticipated trigger of the Article 50 TEU process to leave the European Union, this chapter maps that trajectory by considering the roles of the key institutional actors in the drama so far.
