Scottish Tories demand Boris quits over party with leader saying PM’s position is ‘untenable’

Scottish Tories remained in open revolt last night as they loaded pressure on Boris Johnson to stop

Jackson Carlaw, another previous Scottish Tory leader, also demanded Mr Johnson go, along with other Conservatives MSPs.

Scottish Tories leader Douglas Ross is leading the calls for Prime Minister Boris Johnson to quit.

At a meeting with MSPs last night, Mr Ross told them that Mr Johnson had informed him he could not ensure there would not be more revelations.

He tweeted: Given that the PM has now confirmed he went to a rule-breaking gathering, he has actually lost the self-confidence of the nation, so I believe Douglas has made the right call which the PM must stand down.

Former Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson (imagined with follower Douglas Ross in 2021) has actually said that while its a tough call she feels its the right one that he must stand down

His predecessor, Ruth Davidson, a popular critic of Mr Johnson, backed Mr Ross. She stated of his remarks: A difficult call to make. However the best one.

If the Prime Minister was there, and he accepted today that he was, then I felt he might not continue.

I said the other day if the Prime Minister attended this event in Downing Street on May 20, 2020, he could not continue as Prime Minister so, regretfully, I need to state his position is no longer tenable, he informed STV News.

There was one basic question to respond to the other day, certainly, from Monday night when we saw this invitation which was to more than 100 individuals asking to sign up with others in the Downing Street garden and bring their own booze.

Their leader north of the border, Douglas Ross, stated the PMs position was untenable after he admitted going to a Downing Street celebration throughout lockdown.
