The Prime Minister has reiterated her commitment to the union of the United Kingdom ahead of the triggering of Article 50 on Wednesday. The important speech could not have come at a more timely moment, as the possibility of a second Scottish Referendum, before the completion of Brexit, looms large. On Wednesday, Theresa May will need all her best negotiating tactics to try and leverage the most favourable deal for a Britain outside the EU, and also one that ensures Britain will be the main subject of debate in any future Scottish Referendum.
Leaving the European Union will be an opportunity to strengthen the ties between the nations of the United Kingdom, Theresa May has said. The prime minister was speaking during a visit to Scotland, where she is currently meeting First Minister Nicola Sturgeon at a hotel in Glasgow. She told an audience of civil servants in East Kilbride that she wanted Brexit to lead to a "more united nation". Mrs May will formally trigger Article 50 on Wednesday.
