The SNP has welcomed a new poll showing the party would gain seats across Scotland under any of the Tory leadership contenders.

The ComRes survey of more than 2000 voters for the Daily Telegraph, published today, found that the SNP would make substantial gains in a Westminster election regardless of who the new Tory Prime Minister is - predicting a looming disaster for Ruth Davidson and Scottish Tory MPs.

At the European elections in May the Tories slumped to fourth place in Scotland with their worst result since 1965 – in a strong rejection of Ruth Davidson's anti-independence message. The SNP won, with its best ever result, and the highest percentage of the vote of any UK party.

Commenting, Tommy Sheppard MP said:

"This poll shows that people are putting their trust in the SNP to stand up for Scotland in government and at Westminster – while resoundingly rejecting the Tories.

"Scotland has been completely ignored throughout the Brexit process – and it clear that people are fed up with the Tories imposing their extreme right-wing policies on us against our will. 

"Having slumped to fourth place at the European elections, this poll suggests a looming disaster for Ruth Davidson, whose Brexit support could lead to a total wipe out of Tory MPs in Scotland.

"The people of Scotland deserve the choice of a better future than the Brexit shambles offered by Westminster. Scotland can choose to become an independent European nation

"Any pretence that Scotland will ever be treated as an equal partner in the UK has long gone. It is clearer than ever that the only way to properly protect our interests is with independence."

As published in the Daily Telegraph, the ComRes poll would result in the SNP and Plaid Cymru winning a combined total of 59 to 60 MPs in every scenario -
