Boris Johnson has ruled out ever debating with Nicola Sturgeon after the SNP and the Liberal Democrats lost a legal bid to force their way into the first televised election debate tonight between the Prime Minister and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Boris Johnson ruled out granting permission for a second Scottish independence referendum for the duration of his premiership as he promised to ‘heal the country’ by honouring the results of referendums in 2014 and 2016.
It’s often said that the 2014 independence referendum foreshadowed the political trends that Brexit unleashed on the whole country - an energised electorate, growing distrust of established voices in politics, and plenty of rancour and division.
The Scottish and UK Governments have both been “abject failures” at tackling homelessness, child poverty and the climate emergency, Jeremy Corbyn has said as he embarks on a two-day tour of Scottish constituencies.
The chief of the defence staff has defended Trident as a necessary “insurance policy” after the SNP said the future of the UK’s nuclear weapons system would be up for negotiation in post-election talks with Labour.
