Happy International Women’s Day

On today’s International Women’s Day, Guido thought it was time to celebrate the first female leaders of significant political parties in the UK. The timeline of trailblazers is:

  • Conservative Party, Margaret Thatcher, 1975
  • Green Party, Jean Lambert, 1992
  • Welsh Nationalists, Leanne Wood, 2012
  • Scottish Nationalists, Nicola Sturgeon, 2014
  • Democratic Unionist Party, Arlene Foster, 2015
  • UKIP, Diane James, 2016
  • Liberal Democrats, Jo Swinson, 2019
  • [Labour Party, NA, NA]

Unless Sir Keir has a big announcement to make, sadly the Labour Party can’t yet properly participate in this list…
