Nicola Sturgeon, the leader of the Scottish National Party, said that she will be asking for permission to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence.

The first referendum took place on 18 September 2014. 55.3% People voted against it while 44.7% were in favor of independence.

Now with United Kingdom ready to Brexit, and Scotland being largely against exiting EU, Nicola Sturgeon says it's time to have a second referendum, ideally between autumn on 2018 and the spring 2019. The timing isn't just random but based on the expected conclusion of UK's Brexit negotiations.

Whether she will be given the permission to hold the referendum is currently unknown, there are cases for it and also against it. Theresa May has so far been able to avoid saying anything about it. She has only said that most people in Scotland are not interested in another vote.

Even if the vote won't happen, or it will and the vote will still be 'No', Scottish government will still want the permission to remain a member of the European single market.
