Boris Johnson has said he wants to see the 'magic' of the United Kingdom, in his latest comments on trying to keep Scotland from going independent.
He said: 'The union of the United Kingdom, for me it's the greatest political partnership the world has ever seen.
'I think what people in this country often don't appreciate is the way in which the UK is seen abroad.

'They see amazing British armed services, amazing British diplomacy, overseas aid, British science and technology, British arts, that's the thing that is admired and loved around the world.
'It would be such a shame to lose the power, the magic, of that union. We are much, much stronger and better together than broken up.'
It comes after foreign secretary Dominic Raab claimed that 'opimistic fizz' from Johnson would keep the union together.
The prime minister is said to be holidaying in Scotland along with son Wilfred and fiancee Carrie Symonds.
