Janey Godley has criticised the Scottish Conservatives for not calling on the Prime Minister to resign for breaking the law - despite their campaign to get the comedian sacked for "racist" comments.

The Scottish comic said the Tories had not uttered "a word" about calls for Boris Johnson to resign. The PM was fined by the Met after breaking his own Covid rules by attending a Whitehall party.

She contrasted that to the Conservative campaign to get Godley sacked from her pantomime job last year following revelations about offensive tweets and podcast clips.

Godley apologised for "offensive, hurtful language” which reportedly included remarks about black American celebrities including Destiny’s Child star Kelly Rowland, and rappers 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg as well as the use of the N-word.

Godley Tweeted: "So @ScotTories spent days writing letters to theatres to get me sacked from Panto and my comedy tour cancelled for historic tweets from 11yrs ago - but not a word about #BorisJohnsonResign after the PM admits breaking the law and lying to parliament, what say you @dlumsden?"

Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross dismissed calls for the PM to resign following a Met investigation which fined Johnson for breaking the law.

The Moray MP said it would be wrong to remove him during the Ukraine war.

Despite this, Ross refused to say whether he would support the PM during the next general election.

That contrasts with Ruth Davidson, who called for the Prime Minister to go. That follows similar calls from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Labour leader Keir Starmer.

But the PM, as well as Chancellor Rishi Sunak who was also fined, refused to go, and instead issued an apology over the fines. 

The Met police have issued some 50 fines so far in connection with Whitehall parties during lockdown.
