Lamont was reportedly discontent about criticism of her within the party, and not enough autonomy for the Scottish wing of the party.

Some Labour officials in Westminster “do not understand the politics they are facing,” she told the newspaper, calling them “dinosaurs.” “I am standing down so that the debate our country demands can take place,” Lamont added.

Her move comes ahead of national elections next May.
