The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Politics -

AS Scot­tish Labour leader, Kezia Dug­dale of­ten found her­self in a thank­less po­si­tion.

But fol­low­ing her res­ig­na­tion from the post last month, she has been hon­oured for her diver­sity work by be­ing named Politi­cian of the Year at the Icon Awards at the Glas­gow Hil­ton Ho­tel.

Kezia at­tended the event with her girl­friend, SNP MSP Jenny Gil­ruth.

She said: “I’m in­cred­i­bly hum­bled to be re­ceiv­ing this re­ward as Politi­cian of the Year, es­pe­cially at such an im­por­tant event as the Icon Awards.

“What makes tonight even more spe­cial is that I got to share the mo­ment with my amaz­ing girl­friend Jenny, who I love.

“It’s very fit­ting that our first of­fi­cial en­gage­ment as a cou­ple is at an event cel­e­brat­ing diver­sity and in­clu­sion in Scot­land.”
