When the judgement of Westminster on Boris Johnson is complete, and the Prime Minister presumably falls on his sword, let’s take the same standards and apply them to our own First Minister and Holyrood and see how they compare.

It’s a legitimate approach, given senior SNP figures have been trying to weaponise the Prime Minister’s behaviour and use it as an argument for Scottish independence.

The SNP Westminster leader, Ian Blackford, said last week on Twitter: “Sleaze and corruption are endemic at Westminster… The only lasting solution is for Scotland to become an independent country and escape the broken Westminster system for good.” In response to the comments from Jacob Rees-Mogg directed towards Douglas Ross, Blackford tweeted: “It’s time for Scotland to be an independent country – and escape the arrogant, corrupt and broken Westminster system for good.”
