Rebooting the Conservatives? – @RuthDavidsonMSP

There are some great points in this essay from Ruth Davidson, leader of the Scottish Conservatives.

I’m not sure if I agree with absolutely everything, but she is eloquent on the case for free-market,liberal democracy:

Extreme poverty is being routed. Infant mortality has halved. Literacy rates are climbing. After two centuries of increasing global inequality, developing world growth has reversed the trend. In short, the world is a richer, healthier, better educated and more equal place than at any time in my lifetime.

And, she makes a compelling plea for our government to get its act together and start leading:

It is not enough for government to facilitate a discussion about where next for Britain, it has to actually lead.

Definitely worth a read and a ponder.

Here’s Wikipedia’s article on Davidson.
