Sir Keir Starmer calls on SNP's Margaret Ferrier to stand down


Sir Keir Starmer said the SNP MP Margaret Ferrier should step down over her "jaw-dropping" decisions to attend Parliament and travel on public transport after being diagnosed with Covid-19. The Labour leader said he hoped Scottish Labour would select a local candidate to stand in Ms Ferrier's Rutherglen and Hamilton West constituency should she bow to pressure to step down following widespread criticism of her conduct. Sir Keir was speaking to constituents in an online 'Call Keir' event, during which he also criticised the Scottish Government's handling of the pandemic.
