Boris Johnson heckled as he makes case against Scottish independence - Politico

Despite steering clear of both Scotland's main cities and Nicola Sturgeon during his visit on Thursday, there was no escaping the boos.

The people of Orkney, a sparsely populated island with a Liberal Democrat MP, were given less than 24 hours notice the prime minister was coming, armed with a £50 million funding package for Orkney and other Scottish isles.

If the lack of notice was designed to deprive nationalists of time to organize, it didn't appear to have worked. A small band of protesters, many clutching saltire flags and a few with EU flags, booed and held up placards as Johnson's car moved through a dreich Orkney to the delight of nationalists.
