Boris Rejects Indy Ref II



BORIS Johnson has rejected Nicola Sturgeon’s demand for another referendum on Scottish independence.

In his written response to Ms Sturgeon, the prime minister said he had "carefully considered and noted" her arguments.

But he said: "You and your predecessor (Alex Salmond) made a personal promise that the 2014 independence referendum was a once in a generation vote.”

"The people of Scotland voted decisively on that promise to keep our United Kingdom together, a result which both the Scottish and UK governments committed to respect in the Edinburgh Agreement."


Mr Johnson said the UK government would "continue to uphold the democratic decision of the Scottish people and the promise you made to them".

He added: "For that reason, I cannot agree to any request for a transfer of power that would lead to further independence referendums".
