The Scottish Tories have been challenged over their deafening silence.
Commenting on the silence from Douglas Ross and the Scottish Tories on the latest rule-breaking party in Downing Street, the SNP’s Shadow Scotland Secretary Mhairi Black MP said:
“The silence from Douglas Ross and the Scottish Tories over the latest Covid rule-breaking party in Downing Street is deafening.
“Rather than growing a backbone and challenging Boris Johnson, Ross and his colleagues have gone into hiding – again.
“For all his hollow rhetoric, when it comes to the man he backed as Prime Minister, it seems as though Douglas Ross has conveniently lost his refereeing cards.
“Boris Johnson has serious questions to answer over his conduct and whereabouts over this latest scandal, but people in Scotland won’t be quick to forget how Douglas Ross can’t even bring himself to condemn this latest rule-breaking while everyone else was following the rules.”
