Scottish Liberal Democrat MP, Alistair Carmichael, has issued an open letter to Scottish Conservative MPs calling on them to reject Boris Johnson's Brexit proposal, which would create a border between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom. In the letter, Mr. Carmichael asks Scottish Conservatives to reaffirm their commitment to the political integrity of the UK.

Mr. Carmichael said:

"Ruth Davidson and David Mundell were right last year when they rejected any Brexit deal which would undermine the Union.

"By creating a border in the Irish Sea, that is exactly what Boris Johnson's plan does.

"Pro-UK Members of Parliament must come together to stop this divisive proposal from the Prime Minister. We cannot take the future of our country for granted."
