Gove: PM is 'popular' in Scotland and journey there is 'absolutely essential'

Gove: PM is 'popular' in Scotland and journey there is 'absolutely essential'”

BORIS JOHNSON: On this day, I should just really repeat that I am deeply sorry for every life that has been lost, and of course, as Prime Minister, I take full responsibility for everything that the government has done.

But Johnson brushed aside criticism from Sturgeon, who earlier questioned if his trip breached coronavirus lockdown rules.

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is the leader of the Scottish National Party. The UK is going well in its plan to deliver a first dose to 15 million of the most vulnerable by mid-February and to offer all adults their first dose by autumn, according to vaccine minister Nadhim Zahawi.

The devolved governments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are responsible for their own health policies, and the pandemic has thrust local leaders and their administrations into the spotlight more than usual.

"When the prime minister visits other parts of the United Kingdom, other political leaders don't criticise him, indeed there is a welcome for the prime minister and other ministers who are rolling up their sleeves and are getting in touch with those on the ground who are making a difference". He is the prime minister of the UK.

Downing Street also defended the prime minister's visit, "it is a fundamental part" of his job to "go out and see businesses and communities and people".

"And the visit to Livingston is something we should be proud of as a nation, visiting a vaccine factory, a factory that has made enormous strides to develop, produce a vaccine that is waiting approval to help in the fight against Covid".

"It's important that he travels to see what is going on, on the ground".

"And the evidence they've supplied is they think it's effective across all age groups and provides a good immune response across all age groups", the prime minister said.

But concerns have been raised that Johnson may not be the best figure to champion the Union, with polls suggesting support has risen amid a backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic and of Brexit, a campaign the Prime Minister fronted, while Scotland backed remaining in the EU.

Mr Gove insisted on BBC Breakfast that the Prime Minister is "a huge asset" for the Union, when challenged over his handling of Brexit and Covid-19.

Ahead of his trip, the PM said: "The great benefits of co-operation across the whole of the United Kingdom have never been clearer than since the beginning of this pandemic".

SNP MP Stewart McDonald has also written a letter to the Prime Minister complaining about his trip, saying Castlemilk is a constituency "his party has hit hard", asking the Prime Minister to reflect seriously and respect the guidance.

Addressing lawmakers in the House of Commons (lower house of Parliament) on Wednesday, UK PM Boris Johnson acknowledged parents' frustration with school closure and hopes to begin reopening England's schools from March 8.

"Twenty polls in a row have shown that a majority of voters believe Scotland's future should be in Scotland's hands - not Boris Johnson's".
