Ms Davidson said the Prime Minister's time in office had been characterised by "hard work, resilience, quiet dignity and attention to detail", adding that she had demonstrated her "resolute commitment to the Union, and to Scotland's place in it". "I wouldn't see the Brexit party winning a huge number of seats, but it could certainly do fatal damage in Tory voting seats", Griffiths said, adding that it would be political suicide for the government to agree to Labour's call for snap elections.
She added: "As leader of the Scottish Conservatives, I want to".
The Scottish First Minister said the prospect of someone such as Boris Johnson leading the United Kingdom made a second independence referendum "all the more essential".
Scottish Tory MP Stephen Kerr also said the former Foreign Secretary would face a "challenge" to win approval in Scotland, warning he would have to "project a different image" to voters.
What did Mrs May say?
"Yesterday's elections will surely show that delivering Brexit is now more urgent than ever, and that will fall to a new Prime Minister".

USA tech-giant Google has cut Chinese telecom firm Huawei off from some updates to the Android operating system. Huawei would do everything in its power to mitigate the impact of the US decisions, Liu said.
Mrs May will step down as Tory leader on 7 June, with a leadership contest due to begin the following week.
And the Prime Minister faces a fresh bid to eject her from Downing Street from the 1922 Committee, which meets later today. "Only putting the matter back to the people can do that". "Given current circumstances, it also feels deeply wrong for another Tory to be installed in Number 10 without a General Election".
Reacting to Mrs May's resignation statement, Ms Sturgeon said the the prospect of a "hardline Brexiteer" becoming the next Prime Minister was "not a happy one" for Scots.
"That makes it all the more essential that Scotland has a choice of becoming an independent country".
In an appeal to MPs, Mrs May maintained that her deal was the only way to deliver Brexit.
Her voice shook as she ended her speech by saying: "I will shortly leave the job that it has been the honour of my life to hold".
"I do so with no ill will, but with enormous and enduring gratitude to have had the opportunity to serve the country I love".
