Johnson only increased the Tory vote share by 1%. That is it. In fact I believe his huge majority came from one reason and one reason alone. When The Brexit party decided to give the Tories a free pass for all their current seats the election was won unless Labour and the Lib Dems did likewise in all seats throughout the UK (except Scotland). They didn't and instead attacked each other worse than they did against Johnson. After all look at the Labour heartlands seats they lost. Labour would have won if they had the Lib Dem votes to their total.
I believe that there will be a moment British state will give up tolerating separatists. SNP will be crushed like what Spain did to Catalans.
Scotland will become independent and the SNP will only grow stronger. But it won't be in this generation as the split is 50-50 and Johnson will ignore Sturgeons request and Sturgeon doesn't have any other option but moan about it - unless she plans on arming her party. Although as leaving the EU is a certainty now I do think Scotland have a moral right to another referendum as Westminster is acting against their best interest. Although winning that referendum would not be good for them with a 7% deficit.
