Richard Leonard: confidence or no confidence?



Kippin S (2020) Richard Leonard: confidence or no confidence?. University of Stirling Public Policy Blog [Blog post] 18.09.2020.

First paragraph: Richard Leonard was elected as Labour’s leader in Scotland in November 2017 with a brief to re-establish his party as a force in Scottish politics. However, he has been unable to do so. Just as before, Scottish Labour have not threatened the SNP’s monopoly on power. Instead, it competes, a diminished force, with the Scottish Tories for the scraps from Nicola Sturgeon’s table.
