THERE is now a race for the leadership of Scottish Labour after Johann Lamont resigned late on Friday.

In a strongly worded statement, Lamont expressed her belief that Scottish politics was in “between two sets of dinosaurs”.

She also accused her Westminster colleagues of making her position “untenable” and wanting to control Scottish Labour from London.
