Former Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale has caused controversy by the announcement – which overshadowed the result of the contest to elect her successor – that she would appear as a participant on I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.
In 2012, when Tory MP Nadine Dorries appeared on the same show, here’s what Ms Dugdale had to say about it:
Some have been calling for Ms Dugdale to step down or be removed because of her appearance on the show and she has been criticised for rescinding a pledge to donate ‘any and all’ fees for outside activities to charity in time for her trip to Australia.
Meanwhile, Scottish Labour has a new leader with a vision and a job to be getting on with.
