Ruth blasts plot­ters

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News - Ruth

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.”
