Kezia Dugdale has resigned as ruler of Scottish Labour, saying it is time to “pass on the baton” to someone else.

The Lothians MSP has previously criticised UK leader Jeremy Corbyn, and has faced analysi from left-wing each member of her own party.

She claimed she was leaving the party in a significantly greater regime than she had encountered it.

But she replied a brand-new president was needed with “fresh energy, drive and a new mandate”.

Ms Dugdale is the third Scottish Labour leader to have resigned since the 2014 liberty referendum, with precedes Johann Lamont and Jim Murphy both having stood down.
