credible, authoritative, genuinely "strong", probably saved the conservatives in this election....

I really like her. But I don't think it's possible.


Foxyloxy1plus1 · 09/06/2017 12:00

May will have to go at some point soon. Who to replace her with? Not Gove, Hammond, Johnson, Rudd, Greening, et al. Why not Ruth Davidson? She seems a better prospect.


BabsGanoush · 09/06/2017 12:00

I'd love Ruth to be PM.....did Rudd keep her seat?


Butterbean212 · 09/06/2017 12:02

I thought because she was a member of Scottish Parliament as opposed to House of Commons?


TheSpottedZebra · 09/06/2017 12:03

But she's an MSP not an MP, isn't she?
So I guess that rules her out.


Det54 · 09/06/2017 12:03

I love Ruth Davidson. RUTH FOR PM!!!


Westray · 09/06/2017 12:03

You are welcome to her. I have watched many hours of her rhetoric at Holyrood.
She is a snarly, angry, sneering vindictive woman.


kalinkafoxtrot45 · 09/06/2017 12:03

Her that defended the rape clause? I don't think so.


JustWantToBeDorisAgain · 09/06/2017 12:03

Ruth as PM would make working with the anti LGBT DUP harder work (which can be no bad thing!)


Foxyloxy1plus1 · 09/06/2017 13:04

Rudd kept her seat with a reduced majority.


Babypassport · 09/06/2017 13:18

Yep she's not eligible as she's not an MP. Brilliant leader though.

On a side note to address kalinka, the most SNP representatives voted in favour of this so-called 'rape clause' before labelling it and attacking it in the press. Just another reason to be glad they're on the way out!


Babypassport · 09/06/2017 13:24

Actually sorry that last point was a bit tangential. Please ignore me, post-election fatigue has set in!


EsmeWeatherwax · 09/06/2017 13:41

You're more than welcome to her. She's a really awful politician, vacillating and weak and if you listen to her, completely unable to say anything other than No to Indyref2. (Which I agree with, but thats another issue.)

The Tories gained seats on Scotland due to the short-sighted pursuit of indyref2, not because Ruth Davidson is any great shakes.

Anyone else think she looks spitting image of the butch one from orange is the new black?!

AIBU to want Ruth Davidson for Tory Leader / PM?

Artofnoise1 · 09/06/2017 14:24

Ah, the rape apologist Davidson. Nasty and sneery sums her up.


YoungGirlGrowingOld · 09/06/2017 14:28

Huge girl crush on Ruth here. Been stalking following her on FB for years. Wish it was possible OP.


19lottie82 · 09/06/2017 14:28

Re the "rape clause", did Nicola sturgeon actually do anything about it? Or just talk about how bad it was.


19lottie82 · 09/06/2017 14:29

YoungGirl I've met her. She's just lovely! Smile


19lottie82 · 09/06/2017 14:30

One of my friends was her partner for 5 years. You wouldn't put them together at all!

We keep trying to get her spill some juicy gossip in the pub, but she keeps Totally quiet.......... very frustrating!


HamletsSister · 09/06/2017 14:36

Yes user because all lesbians look the same. Did you join just to share your homophobic misogyny? Not really going to get much of an audience for it here. Try


Iloveyouthismuch · 09/06/2017 14:41

You are more than welcome to her. She has courted the orange order and stood shoulder to shoulder with some vile characters during this election campaign preferring to stir up hatred than campaign on positive policy. How she can sleep at night when her party have just gone into partnership with a party that hates her very existence is beyond me.


YoungGirlGrowingOld · 09/06/2017 21:04

lottie I am Envy


Iloveyouthismuch · 10/06/2017 01:03

Why? younggirl . Are you a fan of anti-catholic, racist, self-hating shit stirrers???


esk1mo · 10/06/2017 01:15

NoLoveofMine · 10/06/2017 01:16

Next Election will be within the year and Labour will win a majority Grin
