Jane Lax Suspended from Conservative Party after Mocking Nicola Sturgeon’s Miscarriage

Jane Lax, the treasurer of a Conservative Party association in Scotland, has been suspended from the party after she mocked a miscarriage which Nicola Sturgeon revealed she’d had in 2011. Sturgeon had raised her personal loss when she was talking about giving parents in the same position paid leave from their work.

The Conservative Party issued a statement condemning the behaviour of Lax, saying:

“These comments are unacceptable. Her membership will be suspended pending a disciplinary procedure.”
