Ruth Davidson – Is she the spy who just wont leave us
Ruth Davidson’s leg up from the British Secret Services propelled her to a new role as a Baroness in the House of Lords. But despite giving up her interest in Scottish politics (keeping the paycheck) she insists on hanging around queering the pitch of any Tory Party official, activist or member who might dare to voice an opinion which does not concur with her views. Time to just go away Ruth. Scots no longer heed your vitriol.
Jun 2016: Words of advice from soon to be Baroness BBC correspondent Ruth Davidson
Reflecting on her very short career as a BBC reporter and her even shorter stint as a part time weekend warrior defending the halls of Glasgow University OTC buildings, advised “newbie” journalists that they should be guided in their political behaviour by the standards she had herself observed. Namely that they should always:
“Keep your personal politics out of your reporting. The job, particularly in broadcast, is to tell people what’s going on; it is not to be an active agent of change and try and shape what’s going on – it is to be an honest narrator.”
“Folk can smell spin a mile off. They aren’t stupid. They know if you are not answering a question or if you don’t really mean what you say. So my best advice is to just try not to say anything you don’t mean and you’ll never be caught out.”

Comment: Voters can detect bullshit a mile off. Yet she and her Unionist friends at the BBC continue to ignore Ruth’s advice to students of journalism.
More bullshit !!!
Sep 2013 – On her time at Glasgow University where she joined the University Officer Training Corps (OTC). She said:
“I was so proud we stopped the slaughter in Kosovo. Security with our armed forces and our NHS means we get the best of both worlds and stand up better together.”
Comment: But she failed to mention that the wars and the accompanying slaughter, in the Balkans were a product of political “giggery-pokery” orchestrated by the controller of the British Secret Services, Martin Rifkind greatly assisted by the British “Spymaster” Andrew Fulton and his team of operatives.
Rifkind and Fulton were the “Ham & Bud” of British spying operations for many years and although supposedly retired and out to pasture from mainstream activity they continue function at the highest level through Rifkind’s company “Orbis”.
Knowledgeable readers will be alerted that this is the company behind the discredited “Trump Russia” dossier.
Unionist Spymaster (s) and Protegee Get to Grips with the Scots
The appointment, of Fulton, in February 2008, by David Cameron, to the post of Chairman of the Scottish Conservative Party was not an unsurprising tactic since the threat to the “Unionist” part of the Party was very real and needed a character of the calibre of Fulton to rid the Party of anyone not fully subscribing to the ideals of the Conservative & Unionist Party.
The execution of Cameron’s plans for reformation was a bit of a bloodbath, much of which was conducted in public and with the assistance of the Unionist press.
Annabel Goldie was sidelined then sacked. Many long serving Party members resigned. Some did so with grace and were rewarded with peerages. Those who chose to stand their ground fight to retain their place within the Party were publicly castigated and forced to leave.
Party membership in Scotland which had shrunk to under 10,000 was also aging and ineffectual.
Young Tory’s were recruited from Scottish Universities and actively canvassed and campaigned increasing the Party membership with “new young and active blood”.
The final piece of the puzzle was revealed with the appointment by Fulton of the previously unknown and politically inexperienced Ruth Davidson. The question raised by many Scottish Tory’s was Ruth Who?? Some conjectured she was a secret service plant groomed for office by Fulton.
Davidson, with the unqualified support of David Cameron, the Tory Government, Mundell, the other Fulton and her mentor Fulton and the British Secret Services, answered the question with actions, not words. She summarily removed every person previously nominated for political office then interviewed and appointed every candidate for the next General Election.
Young Tory’s, provided with substantial financial resources and experienced political guidance from Tory Party Officials from Westminster became active within constituencies and on social media. Their work raised the profile of the new “Ruth Davidson Tory Party Branch Office” in Scotland.
The Tory Party in Scotland manifesto for the 2017 General Election was quiet remarkable, for its absence. The Party campaigned solely on the personality of Ruth Davidson who studiously avoided any situation or circumstance which might require her to tell the Scottish public what her Party had to offer.
Instead she grand-standed throughout the campaign selling herself to the electorate as a modern day “Joan of Arc” who would save Scots from the claws of the SNP. And other historical heroic females were fair game for Ruth. She mimicked “Boadicea” with an armoured tank and “Catherine the Great” with a musk ox.
High profile exposure but without a word on policy. And it worked. The Tory Party branch in Scotland increased its representation of Scots at Westminster for the first time in over 20 years.
Jun 2016: European Referendum- BBC televised discussion – Davidson and Johnson Clash
Boris Johnson criticized the UK and associated European troops’ failure to stop the massacres during the Balkans wars which left 140,000 people dead and many more displaced.
He said the killing was only halted and peace brokered after an American-led Nato force, “asserted its primacy.”
Davidson, whose claim to fame is that, as a reporter she was in the war zone of Kosovo for a few days, rounded on Boris saying:
“I think Boris maybe misjudged this panel by talking about the Balkans because what he probably doesn’t know is that I was sent to the Balkans at the end of the Kosovo war as a reporter and I have never been more proud of being British in my life than watching British troops with a union jack on their arms, believing in something, pulling their weight, and helping in the European Union. That’s what caused me to join up and serve.
I think I am the only one on this panel that has ever worn the Queen’s uniform and whilst I have deep respect for military figures like Field Marshal Lord Guthrie, the former Chief of the Defence Staff, who backs Brexit, that as a retired general he is not presently in charge of the safety and security of the nation. And all of those people who are currently charged, every single one of them and every single one of our major allies, says we are safer within the European Union.”
Comment: Wow!!!! Over-stretching Incredulity. Here are the facts:
Davidson went to Kosovo in 2001 as a reporter with a local newspaper in Fife, reporting on the work of the “Black Watch”, who were in the country assisting with rebuilding work post conflict. But this was a full two years after the war had ended.
Yet press releases, uncorrected by Davidson routinely quote her saying, “I was sent to the Balkans at the end of the Kosovo war as a reporter and I have never been more proud of being British in my life.” She is clearly embellishing events saying she was there at, “the end of the war”.
She also describes Kosovo in 2001 as a “war zone” and a recent BBC piece enhanced her CV with an illusion stating that she had, “served” in Kosovo as a reservist which is incorrect.
Yet another political “sales pitch” designed to enhance her near non-existent military service quotes her as saying it was the Bosnia conflict and the performance of British forces that had inspired her to join up.
But the Balkan wars were genocidal in their execution and the UK and European forces hardly distinguished themselves failing to take any action against the many differing groups of mercenaries who terrorized millions of innocent people for a number of years.
How she see’s herself !!!!
Mar 2014: A few months before the 2014 Independence Referendum Struan Stevenson, former Tory MEP challenged the Scottish Tories to get devolution right saying:
“I am confident of a referendum “No” vote.
I think then that we Unionists have to live up to our pledge that we will give Scots more robust reforms.
I would like to see Holyrood’s powers extended to raising all income and business tax and a “substantial” cut of North Sea oil revenue.
Scots should be fiscally responsible for raising and spending all of their own money. In the long term, I think that is the only way to stop the drift to independence.
Having had the begging bowl system in place in Scotland for the past 15 years we Unionists are finding ourselves yet again on the threshold of Scottish independence.”
Comment: His advice fell upon deaf ears.
