  • Jeremy Corbyn, the UK Labour leader, said: “I’d like to thank Kezia Dugdale for her work as Scottish Labour leader and the important role she has played in rebuilding the party in Scotland.
  • Editorial: She was the party’s eighth leader in 18 years.
  • Ms Dugdale’s time as leader can hardly be judged a success.
  • Labour’s eighth Scottish leader in the 18 years since devolution has been in charge at Holyrood since after the 2014 independence referendum.
  • Corbyn plays differently in Scotland to England, and any new leader of Scottish Labour will have to put Scottish interests not only first, but solely above national (UK) politics.
  • This Wings over Scotland story is a bit pathetic.
  • Support for Corbyn and Labour will grow in Scotland.
  • Put simply, Labour need to register the largest vote share in order to be the largest party at Holyrood (a 12% swing from the SNP) and there is no realistic chance of that happening.

  • This Wings over Scotland story is a bit pathetic.
  • Can' believe Scots are putting their hopes in Labour again.
  • The leader of Labour in Scotland is a representative of a Scottish constituency, whether MP, MSP or MEP.

  • Kezia The sooner Scottish Labour returns to socialism, the better.
  • Labour in Scotland is essentially a nonentity, they are behind the Tories in number of seats in Holyrood, that says it all really.
  • Seems like a shame, she seemed a very capable, sincere person and dragged Scottish Labour out of the gutter at the last election.
  • Corbyn just finished a tour of Scotland preaching his ideas to a country that he thought was a region of England.
  • If Labour want to challenge the SNP but still oppose independence then they need to offer Scotland a full federal settlement for the nation instead of looking like watered down Tories.

  • "Corbynites hope leftwinger will emerge to stand for Scottish Labour leadership"
  • My definition of extremist is someone who puts ideology over practical, workable policy.
  • "Sarwar ...an effective operator at Holyrood"
  • Malcolm Chisholm (also english) would have made a fantastic leader for Scottish labour, a genuinely principled non-sectarian man but unfortunately retired.
  • So Labour under Corbyn got annihilated in the GE and now Labour in Scotland should appoint a Corbynite leader?

  • I greatly doubt that Labour will revive themselves in Scotland under Ms Dugdale, or anyone else.
  • The Scottish Labour Party and Kezia never really saw eye to eye.
  • People voted for Scottish Labour despite Kezia Dugdale, nit because of her.
  • In fact she literally advocated voting Tory instead of SNP, a ridiulous misstep which is hardly likely to endear her to potential Labour voters who have moved to SNP.
  • Scotland is one of England's last colonies.
