"Incompetent, untrustworthy and out of touch, says SNP Depute Leader, Keith Brown.
"Britain's Trump" takes office with a Scottish approval rating of minus 53.
New polling from YouGov has delivered a damning verdict on the new Prime Minister among Scots – revealing that he is viewed as overwhelmingly incompetent, untrustworthy and out of touch.
The new Tory leader enters Number 10 with a rock bottom approval rating of minus 53 – with 65% of Scottish voters believing he will be a “poor” or “terrible” Prime Minister.
Fewer than 1 in 10 people in Scotland think Mr Johnson will be able to negotiate a deal with the European Union, with just 98 days remaining until the 31st October deadline.
68% of Scots do not trust Boris Johnson with our NHS, which is under immediate threat from a post-Brexit trade deal between the UK and Donald Trump.
Indeed, over 70% consider Mr Johnson as “Britain’s Trump” – with an overwhelming majority concluding that is bad news for Scotland.
Figures show that 69% think the new Prime Minister is incompetent, 71% consider him untrustworthy and 76% say he is out of touch.
Commenting on these findings, the SNP’s Depute Leader Keith Brown said:
“People across Scotland are in no doubt – Boris Johnson is incompetent, untrustworthy and completely out of touch.
“We have absolutely no faith that the Prime Minister can protect Scotland’s interests.
“He’s just appointed the most right wing, hard-line Cabinet imaginable – and he’s gearing up to crash us out of the EU with No Deal.
“He’s willing to throw Scottish jobs on the scrapheap and make each and every one of us poorer, just to satisfy the Brexit fanatics on the right wing of the Tory party.
“People living in Scotland are rightly worried for the future of our NHS – which Boris Johnson is willing to sell out in a flash to cut a trade deal with his pal Donald Trump. That cherished institution should never be on the negotiating table.
“It is becoming increasingly clear why Scotland’s interests simply cannot be protected by Westminster.
“Scotland must have the choice to choose a better future with independence.”
