Commenting following Boris Johnson's earlier letter to Nicola Sturgeon rejecting calls for a second Scottish independence referendum, Scottish Labour leader Richard Leonard said:

"I have long argued that the future of Scotland will be won and lost in Scotland, and not on the banks of the river Thames.

" Boris Johnson’s decision to block a second independence referendum in perpetuity does not change this.

"And it is spectacular naively to think this will close the issue down.

"It will only inflame the debate, as Boris Johnson’s history of demagoguery and division shows he is well practiced in doing."
