In her original speech, Ms Sturgeon said: "I would say this to Jeremy Corbyn or any Westminster leader who's looking to the SNP for support - if you don't accept Scotland's right to choose our own future, at the time of our own choosing, don't even bother picking up the phone to me."

Jordan Pfotenhauer, the man who originally Tweeted the video, later added a comment saying: "Since this seems to be getting attention...I hope Nicola Sturgeon picks up the phone and engages with the trans activists fighting for much needed GRA reform."
