United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May and Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon met on the 27 March 2017 to discuss the triggering of Article 50 on the 29 March 2017, which would begin the process of the UK leaving the European Union.

Simon Toubeau and Jo Murkens assess the likely issues up for discussion, noting that if the two leaders maintain the direction they have taken [the UK Government's Plan for Britain / the Scottish Government's Scotland's Place in Europe], there could be a bumpy road ahead for both Scotland and the rest of the UK.
