Ruth has hinted that that she might stand for a Westminster seat if she doesn’t win the next Holyrood election. As support for the Scottish Tories falls back below that of the Labour Branch in Scotland, I’d suggest she hasn’t the slightest chance of winning a Scottish election. A coalition with Kezia’s old Blairite party might have been an outside possibility but it’s clear that Richard the Lionheart will be taking Labour leftward, in an attempt to outflank the SNP and join up with the English forces of St Corbyn, so that can’t happen.
If she were to go down to London, I think she’d do well. In the Scottish context, compared with Sturgeon and others in the SNP, she’s far from impressive but look at the Tories in London – Theresa, Boris, Rudd, Fox, Gove, Loathsome. She’s not up to much, I admit, but she could still beat most of them. According to Sky News:
‘Ms Davidson insisted, in a candid interview with The Spectator magazine, that her top priority was to become Scotland’s First Minister in Holyrood elections in 2021.But she said, if that did not happen, she would be open to offers to stand for a Westminster seat, though she was adamant that she would only fight a Scottish constituency. Last month, the charismatic Ms Davidson gave a barnstorming speech when she was guest of honour at a dinner in the mid Sussex constituency of Tory grandee Sir Nicholas Soames. Her appearance prompted speculation that Sir Nicholas, 69, and grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, is preparing to stand down at the next election – due in 2022 – to make way for her.’
She does have a Churchillian manner about her. As for Soames, didn’t some lady say having sex with him was like having a wardrobe fall on you, with the (wee) key still in?

It wouldn’t be fair for us to stand in her way. We’d just have to do the best we can without her and when we leave the UK we can leave her behind at the same time. Sorted!
