Ruth Davidson is still a Tory despite a Yougov poll finding that Tory Davidson is more popular than Nicola Sturgeon by 1%. The question was based around whether someone was doing good or badly at their job so I am not so sure how accurate it really is compared to a proper popularity poll but it is what it is.
Now we all know the media love Ruth Davidson. We suspect that some Labour and Liberal voters in Scotland love Ruth Davidson because they tactically voted for her in the Holyrood elections in May to defend their union, but she is still a Tory.
But let’s never forget this is the same Ruth ‘ Tory ‘ Davidson who wants to bring back prescription charges, a tax on the sick. Ruth Davidson who wants to bring in tuition fees, a tax on learning. Ruth Davidson who supports the renewal of Trident, the multibillion pound vanity project, a tax on us all.
This is Ruth Davidson who supported Osborne and Cameron’s cuts to social security, by basically never ever talking about them, but openly supported the budget with tax relief for high earners. Ruth Davidson might have gotten away with her stupid photo’s during the election to avoid any scrutiny of her manifesto by a media that shows no sign of wanting to hold her to account in Scotland anyway because she is the Union for them.
But for anyone falling for her crap, her stupid goofy photos on buffalo’s, drinking a pint, sitting on a tank like Maggie, eating a lolly and campaigning as Ruth Davidson for a strong opposition don’t forget, Ruth Davidson is still a F****** TORY.
