Polls show Scotland hostile to probable leader Boris Johnson

Scottish party leaders believe Boris Johnson getting premiership to cause deeper rift between England and Scotland.

Boris Johnson is the frontrunner in the Conservative leadership contest, and if he gets it, he’ll be the next prime minister of the United Kingdom on Tuesday.

But polls in Scotland are suggesting that most Scots are opposed to him.

And the Scottish National Party is already saying it may hold a second referendum on Scottish independence.
