Brexit and Scotland: How Will Triggering Article 50 Affect Scottish Independence?
The triggering of Article 50 seems to have triggered Scotland’s First Minister to do some triggering herself and formally request another referendum on Scottish independence before the Brexit process is complete in 2019. It is unlikely that British Prime Minister Theresa May will agree to this and I think that the by 2012 the benificial effects of Brexit will be more visible. It also seems probable that even more cracks will be appearing in the rather fragile EU so I very much doubt whether the SCots will be interested in leaving a successful UK to rejoin a sinking European Union.
