Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon will warn that UK is “not remotely prepared” to leave the European Union in less than two months, the Times newspaper reported on Monday.
Sturgeon will use a speech at Georgetown University in Washington on Monday to call again for a second Brexit referendum, the newspaper said. She will say the situation had made it clear that Scotland’s interests were not properly served by remaining in the United Kingdom.
Britain is due to leave on March 29.

Room erupts in laughter as Democrat Peter Welch destroys Jim Jordan during impeachment hearing
There was a moment of brevity four-hours into the first televised hearing in the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the bombastic Freedom Caucus member who was added to the committee at the last moment by Republicans, had argued that the White House whistleblower started the scandal.
"There’s one witness, one witness that they won’t bring in front of us, they won’t bring in front of the American people, and that’s the guy who started it all, the whistleblower," Jordan argued.
Unfortunately for the wrestling coach turned politician, Jordan was followed by Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT).
Trump ignores impeachment to host Turkey’s Erdogan at the White House
President Donald Trump greeted his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the White House for a high-stakes meeting Wednesday that underlined his claim to be ignoring the impeachment drama unfolding simultaneously in Congress.
The two leaders were to hold several hours of meetings, including lunch, before giving a joint news conference.
While Congress listened to evidence against Trump from two diplomats in the impeachment inquiry, the US president met Erdogan on the White House's South Lawn, together with a military honor guard, before heading straight to the Oval Office.
Dem lawmaker rips apart top GOP anti-impeachment talking point: ‘Attempted extortion’ is still a crime
Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) on Wednesday tore apart one of the major arguments made by House Republicans during public impeachment hearings.
Throughout the hearing, Republicans argued that there was no scandal in the president's behavior regarding military aid to Ukraine because the aid eventually got delivered.
Castro, during his questioning of impeachment witnesses Bill Taylor and George Kent, expertly pulled this talking point apart by showing that President Donald Trump's efforts to extort Ukraine only failed because he got caught.
Castro began by asking the witnesses why Ukraine didn't actually go through with plans to investigate Burisma, the former employer of Hunter Biden, even though the country had been poised to do so.
