I think that the First Minister knows that we do not need more chaos. We need less of it—so no independence.

Thanks to the UK Supreme Court, parliamentary democracy has prevailed today. When the Prime Minister speaks at the United Nations this evening, he will not be speaking for our country. His unlawful actions have diminished him—if that was at all possible—and humiliated our country once again. The Prime Minister should resign; he is not a fit and proper person, and no person in this chamber, including the Conservatives, should support him.

I agree with the First Minister that we need to bring this chaos to an end. The Prime Minister must resign, we need to stop no deal, we need to have a general election and, most of all, we need to stop Brexit.
