David Cameron

The Scottish Green Party has branded David Cameron’s appointment as foreign secretary ‘bizarre’ and a ‘monumental misjudgement’. Cameron was given the role as part of Rishi Sunak’s cabinet reshuffle.

Referring to the referendum on Britain’s membership of the European Union, the Scottish Greens say that Cameron was responsible for ‘one of the biggest foreign policy disasters in the history of the UK’.

Scottish Greens Co-leader Patrick Harvie said: “This is a monumental misjudgement that exposes the utter weakness of a tired and broken government that can’t even find enough talent on its own benches to fill a cabinet. This isn’t leadership, it is desperation.

“The sight of David Cameron back in government is one that few will welcome, particularly in Scotland where we were dragged out of Europe against our will. It is a slap in the face to  everyone who has had to endure the disaster of Brexit, which was one of the biggest self inflicted foreign policy disasters the UK has ever witnessed.

“We all remember the first time. We remember the cuts and austerity that he inflicted on the most marginalised communities and the total failure of the Brexit that he was responsible for and that has caused so much damage.

“From the cost of living disaster to their attacks on climate campaigners, refugees, the homeless and worker’s rights, the end of this Tory government can’t come soon enough.”
