What can HR learn from the Tory MP resignations?

Earlier this month, SNP.org reported that altogether 25 cabinet ministers, government ministers, MPs and MSPs have either quit the Conservative Party or been given the boot by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Phillip Lee, Bracknell MP and former Justice Minister, was one of the latest MPs to resign after expressing concerns relating to “the approach and direction of the Conservative Party since the EU referendum took place in 2016” in his resignation letter. With a considerable number of MPs fleeing the party soon after one another, the Conservative Party will likely feel a bit thin on the ground.
