SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford has told Theresa May her 'time is up'.
Speaking in Prime Minister's Questions, the politician said: "My goodness, talk about ignoring reality. Prime minister, look at the benches behind you. The prime minister is fooling no-one but herself and the truth is that the people of Scotland don't want her deal.
"Her own party doesn't want her deal and now even the pro-Brexit Labour front bench won't support her deal, her time is up. Tomorrow, people in Scotland have a choice, to send a message, to send pro-European outward looking SNP MEPs to Brussels to stop Brexit.
"Prime minister, what party does she think the people of Scotland will choose?"
She replied: "There is only one party in Scotland guaranteeing no more referendums and that's the Conservative Party."

Theresa May replied: "There is a difference of opinion in this House on the future customs arrangement with the EU, that's why it's important that this House actually comes to a decision on that issue.
"Allowing the second reading of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill will enable this House to come to a decision on that issue.
"It will also enable the House to come to a decision on a second referendum, which I continue to believe would not be the right route for this country to go down, we should deliver on the first referendum before suggesting anything about a second."
