Boris was correct in rejecting Sturgeon’s invitation, as the SNP leader “tries to break up the United Kingdom.”
BORIS JOHNSON turned down an invitation to meet with Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s First Minister, this week. This website polled readers to see if he made the correct decision, and the vast majority said yes.
This week, the Prime Minister has been touring Scotland’s renewable energy farms ahead of the COP26 session on November 12 in Glasgow. Mr Johnson was invited to Ms Sturgeon’s private residence at Bute House in Edinburgh by Ms Sturgeon.
“This might afford us an opportunity… for a discussion on the current Covid situation and our separate plans for recovery – focusing, obviously, on the areas where it is crucial that our governments work together,” she said in her invitation letter, which she shared on Twitter.
“I am keen to organize an in-person meeting with you and the other first ministers and deputy first minister to build on the good discussions we had earlier this summer,” Boris said.
In a poll of 6,159 people conducted between 5 p.m. on August 5 and 3 p.m. on August 6, a massive 93 percent of voters thought Boris made the correct decision in declining the invitation, while only 6% said it was the wrong decision.
“She does nothing except try to split up the UK,” one voter said.
“Well done, Boris!” exclaimed another, congratulating the Prime Minister.
Boris should not have turned down Sturgeon’s offer to meet in Scotland, according to 371 individuals.
Ms. Sturgeon has been pressing for Scottish independence since she took office as First Minister in 2014, but the UK government has consistently denied her request for a referendum.
According to reports, the Prime Minister will travel to Scotland later this week. I invited him to Bute House to talk Covid/recovery because this would be our first opportunity to meet in person in a long time.

Michael Gove stated in the Mail on Sunday that this is not the right “time” for a referendum on Scottish independence, and that one will not be held until “clearly a settled will in favor of a referendum” among the British population.
Some readers, though, rallied to Ms Sturgeon’s defense in the comments section.
“The United Kingdom, in its current structure, has run its course,” Sir William Wallace declared.
