Mr Nicolson stated that Scotland cannot be trapped in the United Kingdom against the will of the Scottish people.

“They have always been on the back foot on the issue of the constitution and Boris Johnson is again.

“If the UK is to be seen as a functioning democracy, you cannot have Scotland trapped within it against the will of the people of Scotland.

“That is not a democracy and I do not think Boris Johnson will stand against this for long.
