Johann Lamont led the Scottish Labour Party to major success in the local government elections of 2012, and resounding victory in the independence referendum last month. The party is currently enjoying a period of increasing membership and engagement.
Thank you Johann, for all you’ve done for the party. We wish you well for the future.
Johann deserves nothing but credit and Party's thanks. Took job at difficult time, led us to a string of by election wins and decisive "No"

Johann deserves credit and thanks for stabilising our party after our worst defeat & for leading us through #indyref to No vote.
