From SNP Media:
The SNP has said Scotland sees through Boris Johnson’s bluster on the Tory sleaze scandal – as new polling shows two-thirds think he did say he would “let the bodies pile high in their thousands”.
The YouGov poll for the Times found half (50%) of people across the UK think Boris Johnson made the comments, rising to two thirds (65%) in Scotland. Just a quarter (26%) of people across the UK think he didn’t make the comments, falling to 16% in Scotland.
Commenting, SNP Depute Leader Kirsten Oswald MP said:
“This poll shows people in Scotland can see right through Boris Johnson’s bluster and dishonesty over the growing Tory sleaze scandal.
“The Tories think it’s one rule for them and another for the rest of us – but on Thursday voters in Scotland can show Boris Johnson that he is not untouchable, by casting both votes for the SNP.
“The central issue at the election is who gets the right to decide what sort of country Scotland becomes after the pandemic – people in Scotland or Westminster?
“The Tories are engulfed in sleaze and they are getting ready to impose massive austerity cuts – with a public sector pay freeze and cuts to Universal Credit firing the starting gun for a sustained Tory attack on public services.
