One of Dumfries and Galloway’s Tory parliamentarians has urged Boris Johnson to resign.On Wednesday, Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross called on Mr Johnson to go after he admitted attending a Downing Street party during lockdown in May 2020.And that’s a view shared by Galloway and West Dumfries MSP Finlay Carson.He said: “I believe his position has now become untenable.

We need a Prime Minister that the public have trust in and who they believe has integrity. There is no two ways about it. Trust and integrity are two of the most fundamental requirements for public office.“He is the Prime Minister and it was his government that put these strict rules in place.

He has to be held accountable for his actions.”By contrast, Dumfries and Galloway MP and Scottish Secretary Alister Jack said he had “faith” in the PM and felt he was doing “a fantastic job”.He urged people to await the result of an inquiry by civil servant Sue Gray into allegations of lockdown parties at Downing Street.Mr Jack said: “Boris Johnson should not resign, I am 100 per cent supporting the Prime Minister.

My view is we should wait for the outcome of Sue Gray’s inquiry.“We know he didn’t get an email telling him it was a bring your own booze party or event, we know he went into the garden at six o’clock to thank people and we know he left at 6.25pm.“He made all that clear in his statement.

'Sorry to get emotional' Naga Munchetty fights back tears over heartbreaking on-air moment
BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Naga Munchetty accepted calls today from listeners who wanted to share their views on Boris Johnson and the ongoing investigation into a party that took place at Number 10 Downing Street.The caller in question told Naga that she had broken the rules during lockdown to see her father, who was isolating alone while his health declined, and shared her “controversial” opinion on Mr. Johnson in light of this fact. Naga, 46, kept calm as her caller, Cath, became choked up as she talked about her father, who died from COVID-19 at the end of 2020. Speaking about her father was clearly difficult for Cath, and at one point another listener texted in to tell her that she had “such grace”, whilst claiming that Boris was clearly lacking in that department. All the while, Naga continued to interview Cath in a considered and measured manner, until the end of the interview, where she couldn’t help but get choked up. Naga became emotional when she asked Cath for her father’s name. She asked: “You have amazing grace, Cath, do you want to tell me your father’s name? Shall we remember him?”Cath confirmed that her father’s name was Roger, causing Naga to take a brief pause. Her voice breaking, Naga continued: “Cath, I’m sorry… I know… Sorry I didn’t mean to get emotional. “I’m so sorry for the pain, and thank you.
