Boris Johnson is unable to promise that no more revelations about illegal lockdown-busting parties will come out in the near future, it has been claimed.

Speaking with Scottish Tory Leader Douglas Ross, the Prime Minister was reportedly unable to give him assurances that yet more negative media stories about his antics during lockdown might be published.

The conversation between the PM and Ross was reported by Daily Record Political Editor Paul Hutcheon, who tweeted:

Been told Douglas Ross said to his MSPs that in his conversation with the PM earlier Johnson couldn’t guarantee there wasn’t more to come out

Following Johnson’s apology in Parliament yesterday, Ross came out against the Prime Minister and called for his immediate resignation, stating:

“I said yesterday if the Prime Minister attended this gathering, party, event, in Downing Street on the 20th May then he could not continue as Prime Minister. So regretfully I have to say his position is no longer tenable.”

“I didn’t want to be in this position, but I am in the position now where I don’t think he can continue as leader of the Conservatives.”

And, on the conversation he had with the Prime Minister, Ross said:

“I spoke to the Prime Minister this afternoon, and I set out my reasons.”

“I know from speaking to colleagues in the Scottish Parliament and the UK Parliament that there is significant unrest and concern about the actions that took place in Downing Street.”

Ross is one of four Tory MPs to have called for the PM to quit since yesterday – the others being William Wragg, Caroline Nokes, and Sir Roger Gale.

Evolve needs your help more than ever.

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
