New Poll Shows That Nine in Ten Scots Think Boris Johnson Lied

Must read

Overwhelming Majority think Prime Minster should resign.

The SNP has said Tory MPs are blowing any remaining trust in their party by failing to remove Boris Johnson from office – after new polling revealed 80% of Scots think he should go.

The new polling from YouGov, published today, found nine in ten Scots (89%) think Boris Johnson “has not been honest” in responding to allegations of Downing Street lockdown parties, and eight in ten (80%) think “he should resign from his role as Prime Minister”.

The figures show a higher proportion of people in Scotland think Johnson is lying, and should resign, than any other part of the UK.

The polling also found that the SNP (at 53%) has opened a 32-point lead over the Tories (at 21%) in Westminster voting intentions, and a 43-point lead over Labour (at 10%).

Commenting, SNP Westminster Deputy Leader Kirsten Oswald MP said:

“Tory MPs are blowing any last remnants of credibility and public trust in the Conservative party by refusing to remove Boris Johnson from office.

“The Prime Minister has broken the rules and repeatedly lied. He is unfit for office and, by failing to act, Tory MPs are sticking two fingers up at the public and proving they have no integrity at all.

“While Westminster descends even further into chaos, corruption and Tory civil war, it is an honour that voters in Scotland are overwhelmingly putting their trust in the SNP.

“We will work hard every day to repay that trust and build a fair, green, prosperous and independent Scotland.”
