Speaking ahead of an election visit to north-east Fife today, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said that Boris Johnson didn’t deserve the chance to be returned as Prime Minister.

On the campaign trail, joined by SNP candidate Stephen Gethins, she said: “Scotland voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU but we still face being dragged out of Europe by a Tory government we didn’t vote for.

“Boris Johnson simply doesn’t deserve the chance to return to Downing Street as Prime Minister.

“Everything he has done in his short time in the job – including his illegal shutting down of Parliament – shows that."

She accused Johnson of "taking the Tories further and further to the right, pandering to the worst excesses of Nigel Farage and the Brexit party".

The First Minister also call out “his refusal to accept responsibility for his language and his actions" which hit the spotlight at the Leaders’ Question Time.
