Rosie Holt took her leadership campaign to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this weekend.
Pledging to make sure “all children have both their socks” the comedian imitated Liz Truss’s comments about first minister Nicola Sturgeon, who she called “attention seeking”.
“Often Scotland gets ignored and it’s hard for them because Nicola Sturgeon is quite attention seeking so I’m here to get my own bit of attention”, she said.

Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
