BORIS Johnson will use a landmark defence shake-up to try to save the union of the United Kingdom.
The PM will also use the long-awaited integrated review to dish out jobs and investment to the four corners of the UK.
And it will say Britain is safer and more powerful on the world stage thanks to the 300 year-old union.
Scotland will build more ships while Wales will produce new armoured tanks under multibillion plans to ramp up Britain’s defences.
While extra investment will pour into lithium mines in Cornwall and manufacturing plants across the North and Northern Ireland.
Boris said: “The foundation of our foreign policy is who we are as a country: our values, our strengths and – most importantly – our people.
“So I am determined to ensure we have a foreign policy that delivers for those people.
“Our international ambitions must start at home, and through the Integrated Review we will drive investment back into our communities, ensuring the UK is on the cutting-edge of innovation and creating an entire country that is match-fit for a more competitive world.”
Going to the war with the SNP, the PM’s defence review will promise extra jobs for Scots if they stick with Britain.
This will include another 500 posts at the Foreign Office hub in East Kilbrid.
The review, which is published tomorrow, will set out Britain’s post Brexit security policy.
A new National Cyber Security Force HQ will be created in the North of England, and trade hubs set up in Wales and Northern Ireland.
The UK will try to free itself from reliance on Chinese goods by investing heavily in technology, defence and green jobs at home, it will say.
Yesterday, the PM savaged Scots Nats for trying to force another independence vote.
Addressing the Scottish Tory party via zoom, he vowed to help unleash a “pent up tidal wave of investment” in Scotland.
He added: “I just find it incredible then that the SNP would choose this moment to again push their campaign for separation.
“Just when everything is beginning to reopen again, when we will soon be reunited with our friends and family, the SNP think that this is the time to turn us all against one another.”
He accused the party of being “obsessed” with trying to tear the UK apart.
