REFORM UK have said they will stand a candidate in "every single" Scottish seat at the General Election.

At a press conference in London on Wednesday, party leader Richard Tice said that Reform UK will look to fight the election in all 57 Scottish constituencies.

He insisted that there would be no deal-making with the Conservatives to stand down any candidates in any seats across the UK.

"I can be absolutely categoric that we are not doing any deals with the Tories," Tice said in response to a question by the BBC's Chris Mason.

"We will stand everywhere in England, Scotland and Wales."

Asked if that would be under "any circumstances", Tice responded: "Under any circumstances, you heard it here folks."

Earlier, Tice told the press conference the party will stand a candidate in "every single seat" in Scotland.

The right-wing party won 5793 votes (0.21%) on the regional list at the Holyrood election in 2021.

At the last Scottish Westminster by-election, Rutherglen and Hamilton West in October last year, the party's candidate David Stark won 403 votes (1.3%).

During a lengthy press conference, Tice claimed the Tories are "terrified" of the threat his party poses at the next UK-wide ballot.

He also said Nigel Farage is yet to make up his mind on the role he will play in Reform UK ahead of the General Election.

The party was founded with Farage's backing, and there was speculation that the former MEP may look to stand as a candidate, but this has not been confirmed.

“We’ve been talking over the Christmas period and he’s obviously giving a lot of thought as to the extent of the role he wants to play in helping Reform UK frankly save Britain," Tice told the press conference.

“He is still assessing that.

“Nigel is the master of political timing but I’m very clear the job at hand is so big to save Britain, the more help that Nigel is able to give in the election campaign, frankly, the better.”

Earlier, he said that the country is “ready for Rishi to call an election sooner rather than later”.

“I’m optimistic that the country quite rightly wants to punish the Tories for breaking Britain,” Tice said.

“The truth is the Tories are terrified, yes in the new year the special pleading has already started. ‘Oh, please don’t stand here, please don’t stand there, I’m one of the nice guys, I believe in everything that you believe in’.

“You’ve all broken Britain, you’re all responsible, so there’s no special deals, we stand in every single seat in England, Scotland and Wales.”

During the press conference, Tice shared a photoshopped image of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and UK Labour leader Keir Starmer where he dubbed them the "socialist twins". 

The mash-up accused Sunak of breaking Britain and suggested Starmer will "bankrupt" the country.
