That does not follow. You yourself keep making the "unprecedented" argument about Brexit. None of those other countries have left the EU and none have had such an abrupt change of interaction with the EU without time to put appropriate policies and infrastructure in place. None have an issue similar to the Irish border; few have a sizable portion of the country already close to having a majority demanding independence as Scotland is. No deal is a very real existential threat to the UK.
