SNP MPs have been instructed to “start polishing up” their CVs in a brutal jibe by the Scottish Secretary within the House of Commons as we speak.

Alister Jack mentioned the nationalist get together was imploding forward of the overall election following Humza Yousaf’s humiliating resignation.

Speaking throughout Scotland questions, Mr Jack mentioned: “We absolutely do not fear an election, whether it is a Holyrood election or a general election. As I watch the nationalists implode again, I say bring it on.

“I hear them say carry it on from a sedentary place, carry it on, sure carry it on. And chaps over there and chapesses begin sprucing up your CV.”

Mr Jack’s comments prompted laughter in the Commons while some SNP MPs shouted “carry it on”.

This came in response to Labour’s shadow Scottish secretary Ian Murray, who argued that Scotland is “trapped between two chaotic and failing governments”.

He said: “We’ve had three prime ministers and we’ll have had three first ministers in as a few years.

“With neither Government wanting to let the people decide, can the Secretary of State tell the House who he thinks is more scared of a general election – the Tories or the SNP?”

Opening the session on Wednesday, Mr Jack mentioned Scotland’s outgoing First Minister Mr Yousaf had been dealt a “rotten hand”.

He mentioned: “We have seen calamitous events again in Scotland this week, however I would like to wish Humza Yousaf very well for the future.

“I all the time discovered him a really first rate man to work with and there was little doubt that he was dealt a rotten hand.

“And while I don’t want to dwell unduly on the private grief of the members of the SNP benches, I’ll say this: I very much hope that whoever becomes first minister will work with us on the issues that really matter for the people in Scotland like public services and our economy, and will not continue to obsess with independence.”

It comes after a chaotic week in Scottish politics, with the collapse of the Bute House Agreement between the SNP and the Greens sparking a series of occasions which led to Mr Yousaf quitting.

The Scottish Government survived a vote of no confidence earlier as we speak with the movement defeated by 70 votes to 58.
