CURSE OF RUTH DAVIDSON STRIKES AGAIN.
DAVIDSON BACKS LOSER IN RACE FOR NUMBER 10.
The “curse of Ruth Davidson” has struck again as her preferred candidate Sajid Javid was knocked out of the Tory leadership race.
The embarrassed Scots Tory leader, who has been ignored by her own MPs throughout the contest, also saw her views rejected by an overwhelming majority of Tory MPs.
She is now supporting Michael Gove, who is currently depriving Scotland’s farmers of £160m of EU funding they are entitled to.
George Adam MSP said:
“The curse of Ruth Davidson strikes again.
“She’s now got some run of form in backing the loser.
“Ruth Davidson hitched her wagon to Sajid Javid’s doomed campaign and, embarrassingly, couldn’t get a single one of her MPs to support him.
“Two weeks ago she took a daytrip to the Peterborough by-election and, true to form, helped rubber stamp another Tory defeat.
“Now that she’s backing Gove, even if he beats Jeremy Hunt, Boris Johnson’s odds will go even higher.
“Ruth Davidson used to be seen as a major figure in the Tory party. Now she’s become a complete irrelevance.
“A hardliner whose lies she once called out is about to become her new boss, and the next Prime Minister. That will be an unmitigated disaster for all of us.”
