SNP MSP Emma Roddick has called on Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak to resign after being found to have broken Covid laws.
Commenting, Roddick said:
“While people across the Highlands and Islands were in lockdown at home, keeping their friends, families, and neighbours safe through pain, loneliness and loss, the Tories – who told us we had to do so to save lives and protect our NHS – partied at Number 10. This much is now clear and supported by the conclusions of the police.
“Johnson and Sunak must now resign, no ifs, no buts. They owe it to the people they endangered and insulted – the people of Scotland, Wales, England and Northern Ireland, who deserve public representatives whose primary concern is to keep them safe.
“I’ve been disgusted to see Douglas Ross and others in the Tory party try and insist that this isn’t the right time for Boris Johnson to resign because there is a war in Ukraine. These are people willing to take advantage of the horrors of the Russian invasion just to save their own political skin. There are no words to describe how reprehensible I find this.
“It’s hard to expect from the Tories, but if Johnson and Sunak have any shame or value their own dignity at all, they will take responsibility for the damage they have caused and resign now.”
