Brexit and the future of cities

Nearly fifty-two percent of people in the UK voted to leave the EU in the referendum of 2016. However, most major cities – apart from Birmingham – voted to remain: Liverpool (58.2%); London (59.9%); Manchester (60.4%); Aberdeen (61.1%); Cardiff (60%); Edinburgh (74.4%). In Bristol, 61.7% voted to remain.

What caused this split between major cities and the rest of the country? What does it say about the future of the UK? And how can UK cities post-Brexit retain good relationships with other European cities and the EU as well as operate effectively within a cohesive UK?
