Just another Greedy Tory

p07lxmp7Ruth Davidson got her pals in the media to try to scam the public into believing she was a different type of Tory. They pushed the line that she was the saviour of the Tory party managing to get their support in Scotland up to around the level of Thatcher (i.e. not very much at all), the workings of the proportional representation system helped them achieve more MSPs (but still some got elected with ridiculously low constituency votes – Annie Wells?) and of course she was the Boris sceptic – voting for every other candidate than the blond buffoon and each time she backed them they fell out of the leadership race. She was meant to be a new type of Tory a working mum resigning from the party’s leadership to concentrate on her new born baby.

CiDFootWsAQ-KsVWhat a crock of shit!

Her political achievements were more about dodgy fake news than actual political change. She ended up with 13 MPs who ignored her – so much for her leadership. She barely does any constituency work – stuck on either 1 or 2 surgeries since being elected. She had to resign as leader as Boris treated her with the same contempt as her MPs and it was clear that her political career had hit the buffers. If she had remained leader during the next general election she would have struggled to get her media pals to explain away why she lost all the Tory MPs in Scotland (according to most polls). And of course, standing down to spend time with her family was just an excuse to get more time building up her bank balance with a £50,000 PR job for only 24 days work per year. She has always been and will always be a political fraudster.

The complaints about her outside earnings are not just about the obscene amount of money she will earn as both an MSP and a PR advisor. It’s really about the damage she is doing to the credibility of all politicians, MSPs and the Scottish Parliament. Scotland’s Parliament was meant to be different from the archaic Westminster, it was meant to represent all the people of Scotland. It wasn’t meant to be like Westminster where PR advisors roam the corridors of power with parliamentary passes – getting to meet and ‘persuade’ politicians on a daily basis and with an open cheque book. Not that long ago the Scottish Parliament tried to tighten up its rules on lobbying.

NINTCHDBPICT000516902407The parliament is for everyone not just those with the deepest pockets. There should be a clear distance between PR advisors and politicians. Davidson has smashed that pretence. She wants to openly play both sides – an MSP who will try to buy favour from her colleagues to support the political aims of her PR customers. If she ever held another surgery for her constituents should they expect to turn up with a cheque book/ bank card and pay for her services to represent them? There is a place for lobbying within any parliamentary system – charities and community groups do it to ensure new legislation is fit for purpose – similarly businesses and individuals do it to make sure legislation supports their aims. However, Davidson has crossed the line. We’re back to the worst excesses of the Westminster system – she has now signalled she is up for sale to the highest bidder. Her PR skills and media pals will have to work hard to limit the damage to her reputation through her greed. If anything it should put off potential PR customers – showing just how inept she really is.

When it all comes down to it Ruth Davidson is just another greedy Tory looking to line her own pockets at the expense of her constituents. Don’t wait for her resignation start campaigning to kick her out of Parliament.

The Imaginary World of Ruth Davidson

In Ruth’s World all reality has been turned upside down.

In Ruth’s World all that is good is really bad.

In Ruth’s World she is a potential First Minister.

bbc-logoIn the same way that television makes instant celebrities of nobodies who feature on tawdry game shows, BBC Scotland has created their own, media-friendly politician.  One who is guaranteed to feature on as many broadcasts as she likes and one which will support the BBC’s hatred of the SNP/ Scotland.  To all intents and purposes Ruth Davidson is a media construct.  Without the unfailing support of the BBC she wouldn’t exist.  In her place would just be another Tory hammering the poor with their evil policies – but not the BBC’s darling Ruth.

RuthDavidson-20160627100050680It’s not that Ruth is a good politician and can hold her own during interviews – she’s never interviewed like any other politician, she’s usually just fed lines like aren’t the SNP bad because …(add whatever cause the BBC are promoting that day) – which she obviously agrees with.  When she is rarely asked a serious question like the one STV threw at her – she is hopeless and unable to rely on her usual prepared script.

Watch this interview via the National here.

Apparently. she can’t name one ting she’s done for Scotland as it would break confidential meetings she has with UK Government ministers – aye right!

This is the women some elements of the mainstream press (especially the BBC) are touting as the next First Minister. There’s more chance of Scotland winning the World Cup!  She is a political fraudster who flip flops on every major decision, one minute she’s for Remain the next she’s calling for Brexit.  Any political comment made by her has a limited shelf life as the commands from London tell her to change her tune again.

Davidson is a fraud, leading a political party which has always used Scotland as a resource to be exploited and little given in return.  This is the woman who supports austerity, supports the bedroom tax, the rape clause, ignores the WASPI women and who changes her tune to suit whatever her paymasters in London tell her.  If she is the best hope for Conservatives in Scotland – or even for the British Nationalists – then great, because she’ll lead them nowhere and when her demise happens it will bring the Tories crashing down even lower.  Take away the free publicity she gets from the mainstream media (particularly her old bosses at the BBC) and you release what an empty vessel she is.  There is nothing genuine about Ruth Davidson except her desire to look after herself and leave the rest of us to rot – another typical Tory.
