‘He says publicly – and he said it to me again today – that he wants a deal with the EU, but there is no clarity whatsoever about how he thinks he can get from the position now where he’s taking an overly arduous line – the withdrawal settlement is useless, the backstop is useless.

‘If I listen to all of that and listen to what’s no longer being mentioned in addition to what’s being mentioned, I feel that it is a govt this is pursuing a no-deal technique, alternatively a lot they will deny that in public.’

But Ms Sturgeon made transparent her need for Scots ‘to chart their own course and choose their own future’.

She advised BBC News: ‘I made abundantly clear to Boris Johnson my opposition to Brexit and a no-deal Brexit, and also made it clear to him the people of Scotland should be able to chart their own course and choose their own future, not have that future imposed upon them.’

She mentioned Mr Johnson had ‘set the UK on an almost inevitable path to a no-deal Brexit’.

Ms Sturgeon added: ‘The position it has taken makes it very difficult to see how any deal can be struck with the EU and I think that would be catastrophic for Scotland and the whole of the UK.’

A Number 10 spokesman mentioned Mr Johnson advised the First Minister ‘he was a passionate believer in the power of the Union and he would work tirelessly to strengthen the United Kingdom and improve the lives of people right across Scotland’

He added: ‘On Brexit, the Prime Minister said that while the Government’s choice is to barter a brand new deal which abolishes the anti-democratic backstop, the United Kingdom will probably be leaving the EU on October 31 someway.’
