Boris Johnson told Ian Blackford that there was a profound philosophical difference between them as the SNP believes it is the duty of the taxpayer to pay more. The Prime Minister’s attack was stopped by the Speaker of the House of Commons for trying to “wind up” Mr Blackford.
The Prime Minister said: “I will say to the honourable gentlemen that there is a profound philosophical difference between him and me.
“The SNP is morphing into an evermore left-wing party that believes fundamentally that it is the duty of the taxpayer to pay for more and more.

“Please let’s drop it.”
