UK prime minister, Boris Johnson, says another referendum would continue political stagnation in Scotland

Adds that he cannot agree to any request that would lead to further independence referendums. Well, it's not like we didn't see this one coming since the general election but even as Sturgeon tries to push her case in the courts, it isn't going to succeed.

As long as Johnson continues to rule out granting a second independence referendum, I'm afraid the SNP will have to resign to the fact that they won't be getting one.
