  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Scottish election: How Boris Johnson could deny Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP a second referendum” – below is their description.

    Nicola Sturgeon hopes to win an SNP majority on May 6 and with it a mandate to call a second referendum on Scottish independence.

    Boris Johnson has repeatedly indicated that whatever the outcome, he does not intend to grant permission for a referendum to be held.

    But what if Scotland’s pro-independence parties hold an illegal referendum? Or try to force the argument that they have a moral mandate to hold one?

    The Telegraph’s columnist Alan Cochrane explains the options on the table.
