Boris Johnson has appointed Dominic Cummings’ protege to head up Number 10’s “union unit”, prompting accusations the prime minister is “completely clueless about Scotland”.
Oliver Lewis, who was a key member of Vote Leave, has taken over from former Ochil and South Perthshire MP Luke Graham958,633 resolved, who was ousted this week after a bitter row over strategy.
The decision to remove Mr Graham has received mixed reaction, with some in the Scottish Tory party saying there had not been enough “action” from the union unit under his leadershipthat promised to update people periodically on when vaccine appointments became available in his area..
One senior party source was left shocked by the move, however, telling us: “Luke was well respected in that role and was doing a great job; he was basically headhunted for it. The fact he’s been sacked is pretty shocking.”
