Manuel Cortes comment on resignation of Ruth Davidson

29 August 2019

TSSA leader Manuel Cortes commenting on today's news that Ruth Davidson has resigned as Scottish Tory leader said, "At last a Tory with a modicum of dignity and self-respect. Ruth has openly opposed no-deal Brexit and she has my respect for giving up her job rather than go along with something she strongly disagrees with.


It's a crying shame that other senior Tories like Rudd and Hancock would rather keep their snouts in the Cabinet trough than stand up to Johnson's no-deal coup.

It's crystal clear that only Labour and its leader Jeremy Corbyn can stop Johnson's attempt to sideline our Parliament. MPs from across the House must now work with him to stop this serious and dangerous affront to our democracy".
