Responding to the news that 148 Tory MPs voted against Boris Johnston this evening, an astonishing 41% of all Conservative MPs, Scottish Greens co-leader Patrick Harvie said:
“The overwhelming majority of the public have recognised for some time that Boris Johnson is unfit for office.
“This vote shows that an ever increasing number of Tory MPs share that view, at least in so far as it relates to their own self interest.
“It is also remarkable that the self styled ‘minister for the Union’ appears to have lost the confidence of his Scottish Tory MPs.
“It’s only a matter of time before Douglas Ross accepts what many of us have known for a long time: that Westminster simply doesn’t get Scotland.”
