Penny Mordaunt says the SNP is in its ¿final death throes¿ and should prepare for a Unionist government in Scotland

The SNP is in its ‘final death throes’ and should prepare for a Unionist government in Scotland, according to Penny Mordaunt.

The Commons leader made the comments to Nationalist MP Deirdre Brock who complained that Prime Minister Rishi Sunak had associated the Scottish Government with extremists.

In response, Ms Mordaunt fired off a jibe that Ms Brock could fill in one of Police Scotland’s hate crime reporting forms.

On Monday, Mr Sunak said Scottish Nationalists are ‘trying to tear our United Kingdom apart’ in a Policy Exchange speech, and he has since denied SNP accusations about his comments.

At business questions yesterday, Ms Brock said: ‘The Prime Minister has refused to apologise for his offensive outburst on Monday – he quite deliberately associated the Scottish Government with Hamas terrorists, North Korea and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard. The good folk of Edinburgh North and Leith [Brock’s constituency] have elected a dangerous extremist. Who knew?’

Responding, Ms Mordaunt said: ‘She raises the very serious matter of the Prime Minister’s language and I understand that thanks to the Scottish Government, you can now fill in a hate report form.

‘So if [Ms Brock] has any concerns, she can just fill in a report, and pile more work on to her hard-pushed police officers.’

Ms Mordaunt also flagged up Scottish Secretary Alister Jack asking the UK Energy Secretary to plan a new nuclear power plant in Scotland.

She said: ‘With regard to plans to put a nuclear power station in Scotland, it is sensible to plan for a Unionist party to be in government in Scotland, given the timescales involved in nuclear construction.

‘It is very clear to everyone except the SNP that their party is in their final death throes. I predict that at the tragic finale of that, when the SNP finally do completely implode and meet their end, there will still be no ferry to carry them across the Styx.’
