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.
