LEADER of the Scottish Tories Jackson Carlaw has resigned from his post revealing he is not the best person to lead the party into the upcoming Scottish elections.
Carlaw said in a statement: “Given the importance I attach to the job, I’ve therefore decided to stand down with immediate effect.”[I] simply believe that a new leader will be able, as we recover from the Covid-19 emergency, to make the case for the Scottish Conservatives and the union better than me,”
“That is all that matters.”
“Given the importance I attach to the job, I’ve therefore decided to stand down with immediate effect.”
The Scots MSP took over the Scottish wing of the party in February 2020 but was given the boot with his poor handling of holding Nicola Sturgeon to account amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
Ruth Davidson has been tipped to help bring the Scottish Conservatives back with a chance of winning, though sources close to Davidson said she will not return to lead the party.
