When arrogant buffoonery just isn’t enough: Humza Yousaf Resigns

Humza Yousaf announced his resignation as Scotland’s First Minister at noon today. The Telegraph has more.

The SNP leader will quit ahead of a vote of no confidence at Holyrood, expected on Wednesday, that it appeared likely he would lose.

Mr. Yousaf will make a statement on his future at Bute House in Edinburgh at noon. …
