Tory leadership contest is a ‘horror show’ and ‘continued Brexit delusion’


Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon has branded the Conservative leadership contest as a “horror show.”

After Boris Johnson announced he pledges to cut income tax for high earners living south of the border.

Sturgeon said on Twitter, “What a horror show the Tory leadership election is. Tax cuts for the richest, attacks on abortion rights, hypocrisy on drugs, continued Brexit delusion.

“True colours well and truly on show.”

SNP MSP Angela Constance said, “Scottish taxpayers now face the prospect of paying for a tax cut for the likes of Boris Johnson and his cronies.”

She added, “That would be entirely indefensible, and is only likely to see a further rise in support for independence, which would give Scotland full powers over tax.”
