BORIS Johnson has been slammed after he repeated a debunked lie about the Scottish Government during Prime Minister’s Questions. 

Responding to a question from the SNP’s Ian Blackford, the Tory boss claimed the SNP administration couldn’t bring themselves to say the word Oxford when talking about the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.

That's a line that been bandied about by countless Scottish Tories MSPs over the last week. 

It’s a good line if you’re a Tory. 

If you’re a big old Unionist, you can point to that and go “hey, look the SNP are small minded and petty”.

The only problem is that it’s complete and utter nonsense. It’s guffery of the highest order. 

Go on to the Scottish Government website and search for Oxford/AstraZeneca.

Sure, there are parts of the Scottish Government’s website that refers to the AstraZeneca vaccine, but it mostly calls it the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.

But, you know, there is one government agency who don’t always remember to mention Oxford when talking about the jab. 

Do you know who? 

The UK Government's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency!

How petty.
