LONDON (Reuters) - The unity of the United Kingdom depends on mutual respect that has been lacking in political debate over Brexit, resigning Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson said on Thursday.

“Respect is what is missing from our debates, and without respect you cannot have understanding and you cannot unite which is what we in Scotland and in the UK need to do,” Davidson said.

She said she thought Prime Minister Boris Johnson was seeking a Brexit deal.
