Following the resignation of Annabel Goldie, Ruth was elected leader of the Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party in November of that year. In May 2016 she was re-elected as the constituency MSP for Edinburgh Central and now leads the official Opposition party at Holyrood.

Tony Travers is Director of LSE London at the London School of Economics and Political Science and a professor in the School’s Government Department.
