Ruth Elizabeth Davidson famed as Ruth Davidson is a Scottish politician who served as Leader of the Scottish Conservative Party from 2011 to 2019 and has served as Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) for Edinburgh Central since 2016.

Ruth Davidson's obvious contempt for Boris Johnson leaks out

In Edinburgh, there was the more than a hint of conscience as Ruth Davidson resigned as leader of the Scottish Conservatives. With a clipped delivery, trying though not always managing to keep her emotions in check, Davidson explained her departure in a brief 10-minute press conference. Politics had taken a huge toll on her personal life during the last eight years. She had been a bad daughter, partner, and friend. Now she had a baby son, enough was enough. The implication being that it was a shame Boris Johnson’s family had unilaterally decided it didn’t want to spend more time with him. Not that the prime minister’s name was ever mentioned in her opening statement. Rather she let her obvious contempt leak out as a stream of consciousness subtext. She was proud of what she had achieved both in the Scottish independence referendum and in getting 13 Tory MPs elected to Westminster in 2017. But that was now all as good as trash. First by David Cameron’s recklessness in calling the EU referendum and now by Johnson’s enthusiasm for a no-deal Brexit. The Union was now in greater danger than at any time and the Scottish Tories would be wiped out in a general election. Thanks for nothing, chaps. She had done her best to mitigate the effects of Brexit – she hoped that the Scottish fishing and whiskey industries would more or less survive – but right now she could no longer guarantee their protection in the face of no deal and credible threats of a general election from opponents. And the biggest opponent of all was Boris. Because no one was doing more to make sure an early election took place than him.
