Boris Johnson will look closely at Scottish referendum announcements

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said he will carefully consider statements by the Scottish authorities about their intention to hold an independence referendum in the fall of 2023. According to him, London will respond “in due course”.

Johnson reportedly vowed to scrutinize the plans of Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

“I haven’t seen her perform yet,” he said.


At the same time, the prime minister noted that the country will focus on strengthening the economy.

“The focus of the country should be building a stronger economy, which is what we are doing with the plan to strengthen the economy. And I think together we can have a stronger economy and a stronger country,” Johnson said.
