Ruth blasts plotters
Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson has told plotters against Theresa May to “put up, shut up and get off the stage”.
The Prime Minister faced a coup attempt orchestrated by former party chairman Grant Shapps after her disastrous party conference speech last week.
But Davidson, who has denied that she wants to be PM, said: “I would tell my party to get its house in order, get together, knuckle down, and make sure that our first commitment, last commitment and only commitment is to the country,” Davidson added: “I think if the plotters were serious, they would be led by someone a bit more serious. “I have to say I’ve not got much time for them. I think there’s an awful lot of people in our party that need to settle down.”
