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.
