Douglas Ross Utterly Humiliated by U Turn on Prime Minister

Must read

Renewed backing for Boris Johnson leaves The Scottish Tories looking ridiculous.

Responding to reports that Douglas Ross has withdrawn his letter of no confidence in Boris Johnson following repeated rule-breaking, SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford MP said:

“This is an utterly humiliating U-turn for Douglas Ross.

“Only a few weeks ago he was categorical that Boris Johnson should be removed from Downing Street over his repeated rule-breaking. N

“Now apparently he will roll out the carpet for the Prime Minister at the Scottish Conservative conference and pretend that the no-confidence letter that he submitted with such fanfare never happened.

“And of course, the entire Tory MSP group at Holyrood backed Douglas Ross in his demand that Boris Johnson quit – so they will no doubt be furious that he has marched them up a hill and now left them looking ridiculous.

“And the Tories’ weasel words that this isn’t the time to pursue such issues is beyond hypocritical – this time last year they tabled a no-confidence motion in the First Minister in the midst of a raging pandemic.

“It is ironic that, having tried to get his boss removed from office, spineless Douglas Ross has ended up catastrophically undermining his own position – and is no doubt on borrowed time as the apparent ‘leader’ of the Scottish Tories.”
