The Tories have been challenged to confirm whether they will accept the membership application of shamed former leader of UKIP Scotland. 

David Coburn previously compared SNP MSP Humza Yousaf to convicted terrorist Abu Hamza, which he later dismissed as a “joke”. 

The Scottish Parliament unanimously voted to condemn David Coburn’s comments at the time. 

Mr Coburn has now announced he has joined the Tories after the General Election in order to support Boris Johnson’s campaign against Scottish independence. 

SNP MSP George Adam said:

“It’s sadly no surprise that the Tories under Boris Johnson are attractive to a disgraced figure like David Coburn. 

“But surely even Jackson Carlaw can see that accepting Mr Coburn as a member is a step too far.

“This is a man who was unanimously condemned by all political parties in the Scottish Parliament for his disgraceful comments directed at Humza Yousaf. 

“If they have any decency, the Tories must reject Mr Coburn’s membership - and they should reflect on why they were attractive to him in the first place.”
