Conservative leader: Ruth Davidson

Views & insights


1 May 2018 | 27 minute listen

This week’s podcast is with Ruth Davidson, the leader of the Scottish Conservatives who is also often talked about as a candidate to become Conservative leader or indeed Prime Minister.

We ask Ruth about how she achieved the remarkable improvement in seats at the 2017 general election and how she brought this about. We also ask about what mandate she, a Remain voter, feels her Conservative government must deliver on Brexit. We ask Ruth about her Conservative heroes and what it is that unites her with other Conservatives as we accept, that like all parties, the issue of Brexit splits them down the middle.
