The results of the UK parliamentary election may affect how smoothly Brexit goes. A messy break up with the EU could send Scotland into a second referendum on independence.
In the first rally since First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she wanted another vote on Scottish independence, tens of thousands of people marched in support in Glasgow. The rally was twice the size of the one last year.
Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said that her devolved government will take a first step towards holding an independence referendum by May 2021. She hopes to have legislation agreed by the end of the year.
UK Prime Minister Theresa May spent her weekend at the Chequers country retreat, fighting for her Brexit withdrawal agreement. Some of her senior Cabinet ministers denied they were about to oust her from office.
Tom Watson, the opposition Labour deputy, will be his party's only leading light on the second People's Vote march in London. The rally has gathered cross-party support as the prime minister offers to talk to MPs.
