Last quote by Ruth Davidson

Five times in six months the will of the Scottish parliament has been clear and five times in six months this SNP government has chosen to ignore it. Will the SNP explain [to the public] why votes on crucial issues such as health and education funding and enterprise and energy should be wilfully ignored by the SNP government, but when it comes to independence and only when it comes to independence, Holyrood is sacrosanct?

Ruth Davidson has most recently been quoted in an article called Nicola Sturgeon told by senior colleague: Delay referendum until Scots drop opposition. Ruth Davidson said, “Most people in Scotland are sick to death of the SNP's games. They don't want another referendum any time soon, just three years after the last one. It was about a well-rehearsed game to put forward unworkable proposals, wait for Westminster politicians to point that out, then rush to any nearby microphone – angry face attached – to trot out the same old tired complaints. This bulldozer approach is completely at odds with the way the 2014 referendum was held.”. Ruth Davidson has been quoted a grand total of 20 times in 15 articles.

It is time to get rid of the waffle, and the theories that have failed – and restore Scotland's reputation as providing the best education in the world.

We must take this opportunity to bring our United Kingdom closer together because the Union which we all care about is not simply a constitutional artefact. It is a union of people, affections and loyalties…The existence of our Union rests on some simple but powerful principles: solidarity, unity, family.

I would be confident of victory. By the end of the last campaign Yes had already crossed over to be in the lead in the polls and we won by 10 points. At the moment they are polling way below what they were doing then. I think the arguments are weaker and I think the people of Scotland are just as switched on as they were three years ago so I think there's every chance that we would win by a wider margin. Folk aren't daft – they can see through that.

[The] Scottish National Party should have the good grace to accept that many of its own demands – including the protection of workers' rights, and the protection of rights for the EU citizens in Britain and cross-border cooperation on tackling crime – have been recognised by the UK government.

I am childless. I have nieces and nephews. I believe I - like everyone else - have a very real stake in our country.
