Mr Johnson told MPs that the only thing that Ian Blackford’s party could think about was how to “break up this country, destroy this country.” The Prime Minister called on the SNP to instead “tackle the issues that matter to the people of Scotland.”

The Prime Minister said: “Tackle the tax regime that they put in place.
