Christina McKelvie has called on Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak to resign after being found to have broken Covid laws.

Commenting, SNP MSP Christina McKelvie said:

"Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak must now resign.

"The Prime Minister repeatedly misled Parliament, lied and took the people of Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse for fools – sometimes laughing about breaching the same laws we were all following to keep our family safe.

“Douglas Ross and the Scottish Tories are just as bad as he appears to be unable to grow a backbone and call on Boris Johnson to resign.

"In reality, Johnson and Sunak have overseen one of the biggest lockdown breaches that has led to the Metropolitan Police issuing a staggering number of fines for rule-breaking.

"The Prime Minister and Chancellor's positions are untenable. They have insulted people in Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse who faithfully followed the rules that they set – even when that meant the heartbreak of not being present for the births, marriages or the deaths of loved ones. 

"There simply cannot be one rule for the Tories and another for the rest of us.

"If Johnson and Sunak have a shred of dignity they will finally do the right thing and resign now. On May 5, people in Hamilton, Larkhall and Stonehouse can send a message to the Tories that they have had enough of this law-breaking government and vote SNP.”
