Nicola Sturgeon was torn apart by Douglas Ross who revealed the Scottish First Minister hasn't visited his constituency, Moray, for two years while Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been there twice in eight months. He told Times Radio that he wants to represent all parts of Scotland in the lead up to the next election. Mr Ross has recently said the only party able to stop the SNP, who are on track for a majority according to two recent polls, was the Scottish Conservatives.
He said: "The Prime Minister was up in my constituency just a couple of weeks ago, it's his second visit to Moray in just eight months and I think it's extremely encouraging that the Prime Minister gets out to all parts of the UK up to Moray.
"We haven't seen Nicola Sturgeon, the First Minister, for two years in this part of Scotland.
"I want to change that.
"I want to lead the Scottish Conservatives who can be represented and representative of all parts of Scotland and that's what I plan to do starting today."

Just hours after he was appointed leader in the uncontested race, Mr Ross told the PA news agency: "We have to remember that the SNP went into the last election, and Nicola Sturgeon led them into the last election, to a loss of their majority.
"Many people don't remember that they went into the election with a majority and came out without one because of the huge increase of Scottish Conservative MSPs.
"The message is very clear: if people want to stop the SNP, the only party that is capable of doing it and has done it in the past
