Kwasi Kwarteng spoke to Piers Morgan Uncensored hosts Isabel Oakeshott and Richard Tice about the Scottish First Minister’s shock resignation. The former Chancellor stated that the controversy surrounding convicted transgender rapist Isla Bryson led to Sturgeon’s downfall.
Speaking last night on TalkTv, Mr Kwarteng said: “This man had been convicted of rape twice and then was put into a women’s prison. Which defies all common sense.
“And I think Nicola, trying to say that this was the right thing to do, got herself in a lot of knots.
“It really was the straw that broke the camel’s back.
“Her ratings plunged.
“And essentially her woke agenda ended up blowing up in her face.”

Bryson was convicted last month of raping two women, one in Clydebank in 2016 and one in Drumchapel, Glasgow, in 2019.
She committed the offenses when she was a man, named Adam Graham.
Following the conviction, Bryson was placed in Stirling women’s prison, causing political and public concern.
Bryson will be sentenced later this month.
Mr Justice Scott, the judge, told Bryson at a previous hearing: “You have been convicted by the jury of two extremely serious charges; those being accused of rape.”
He added the crimes were “considerable” and “a significant sentence is inevitable”.
