Ruth Davidson Batters Jim Murphy in #ScotDebates

 

Jim Murphy was under the cosh during last night’s Scottish Leaders’ Debate, repeatedly mansplaining to Ruth Davidson and Nicola Sturgeon and coming fourth with the Sun’s Twitter worm. This is the moment the Scottish Tory leader pummelled her Labour counterpart on the economy:

RD: “There’s a massive difference between you and me. You crashed the economy and I’m trying to rebuild the economy. That’s the difference between you and me, Jim. You’ve run from your role in the referendum and I’m proud of my role in the referendum. That’s another difference between you and me, Jim.”

JM: “…The growth big growth in the last few years hasn’t been in industries, it’s been in foodbanks.”

RD: “The big growth in the last few years has been in jobs, you had higher unemployment…”

JM: “…There are people out there tonight sitting over their phones who have got zero hours contracts…”

RD: “And 68 of your MP colleagues employ people on zero hours contracts. Have you ever worked on a zero hour contract? Have you ever worked on one? I have.”

There was no snap poll, but Ruth was the resounding winner among the pundits…
