Theresa May gave a speech at the Conservative party conference this weekend in which she said that Scotland would have no option to veto Brexit or to opt-out of leaving the EU.

This is despite the majority of Scots voting to stay in the EU.

Surprisingly though, our overnight presenter was insistent that it was completely right that Scotland should have to go along with the wishes of the rest of the UK.

"She was talking about the fact that we are essentially one country and we voted as one country to come out of the European Union.

"On that, as much as I enormously regret the result of that vote, I think she's absolutely right.

"Scotland didn't vote for Scotland to remain in the European Union, Scotland voted for the UK to remain in the European Union. London didn't vote for London to remain in the European Union, London voted for the UK [to remain in the European Union.]

"We weren't voting for our own little bit of the country to stay in the EU...if the majority of people vote in a different way...you've got to accept it!

"This idea that Brexit is going to somehow trigger Scotland's special snowflake status once again? It's nonsense!"
