        The term UK could of course be completely meaningless if the Scottish go independent.


        My I.O.W home briefly and unsuccessfully called for independence many years ago, but I still (illegally) display their flag on my numberplate, which may mystify the average Gendarme... not that I consider he'd give a toss as he's writing out my fine!

          If you read the directive. You don’t have to change your plates. All you have to do is display a UK sticker on the vehicle if going abroad if yore current plates are GB ones. So not much different to the requirement to display a GB sticker like we used too before Euro plates  8):)
