She spoke with the Prime Minister in a phone call on Friday following the election in which the Conservatives swept to a large Commons majority, while the SNP won 48 of the 59 Scottish seats.Downing Street said that in the call, Mr Johnson "made clear how he remained opposed to a second independence referendum".However, speaking at the V&A Museum in Dundee on Saturday as she joined her party's newly-elected MPs, Ms Sturgeon insisted it is unsustainable for the Tories to keep saying no to a fresh vote.
