SNP to table a motion of censure

The SNP has announced its intention to table a motion of censure in Westminster on Tuesday. 

The party’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford said: “It is sometimes worth reminding ourselves that Boris Johnson has now headed up this shambolic Tory government for a little over two years. 

“In that time, there has been a cash for honours scandal, a cash for contracts scandal, a text for tax breaks scandal – there has even been a cash for curtains scandal.
