Johnson’s Plans to Visit Scotland Met With Derision

The news that the UK Prime Minister plans to visit Scotland more often in order to bolster support for the Union has been widely met with derision and disbelief North of the border.

It was reported in the Sunday Times that Mr Johnson is on a “new mission to save the Union”, as panic takes hold in London over consistent polling that suggests there is a settled majority in Scotland now in favour of independence.

Johnson’s approval ratings in Scotland are through the floor at minus 39, compared to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s at positive 61, a full 100 point gap. In these circumstances, it seems strange to have Johnson front the effort to “save the union” in Scotland. It would appear to be a gift to those who want independence and it is certainly being hailed as such on social media.
