This is what comes subsequent.
Formal talks on the UK leaving the EU are resulting from begin on June 19. Senior EU officers and politicians have stated Might can postpone the date if she must, however with a ultimate deadline for exiting the EU in March 2019, valuable negotiating time can be misplaced if delayed.

She argued that Brexit, which Scotland largely rejected, modified the state of affairs to such an extent Scotland ought to be given a second referendum.
