NICOLA Sturgeon has told Boris Johnson to think of an independence referendum not as losing Scotland but as the Tories ruling unchallenged forever.
In a call to the prime minister last night, Sturgeon told him ‘it is not if but when’ she gets another referendum, wins Scottish independence and any risk of a Labour government is eliminated permanently.
She continued: “I know you like referendums, Boris. I know you like everyone thinking you picked the wrong side and you proving them all idiots. Don’t you?
“Well this referendum would be a very special referendum. It would mean that the Opposition has a handicap of 59 MPs going into every election, so you would always win.
“Yes, some people in your party won’t agree, but you can fire them like last time. And the Queen won’t like it but you talked her into prorogation didn’t you, you silver-tongued devil?
“All these scare stories about it diminishing the UK are the same ones we heard during Brexit, and they were wrong, weren’t they? They don’t have your boldness or your vision.”
Boris Johnson said: “All on my own, without any influence from anyone, I’ve just come up with a brilliant idea.”
