LABOUR MP David Lammy has recognised how politics in Scotland has changed in recent years while appearing on the American podcast Pod Save The World.

The MP for Tottenham conceded that, as a member of parliament for twenty years, the recent election had been "shocking" for the Labour party.

He also claimed that the deal Prime Minister Boris Johnson had struck to leave the EU, and his means of doing so, was "more than likely" to play a role in the breakup of the United Kingdom.

Speaking with show hosts Ben and Tommy, Lammy said that a future vote on independence was likely, given Scotland's history and current politics.

He said: "The culture and temperament in Scotland has now swung entirely behind the SNP, and if you think about it, from their point of view they want to remain in the European Union.

"They have a an independent country. They are very likely to get that independence vote, and they are likely to vote for independence."

He also drew attention to the prospect of a United Ireland in the future as well.

Lammy recently announced he would not be running to replace Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the Labour party.
