Ruth Davidson odds slashed for succeeding Theresa May as Conservative leader :

BOOKIES have slashed the odds on Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson succeeding Theresa May as the next UK Conservative leader.

It comes in the wake of her party’s strong performance which saw it win 12 new seats.

The current favourite to replace Mrs , described by some critics as a “dead woman walking”, is Boris Johnston but it remains uncertain if he will stand.

He is currently at 2/1 – but Ms is rapidly catching him with SkyBet offering 9/2 odds.

Many insiders say Ms Davidson’s stunning turnaround of a party up until recently thought of as “toxic” here will see her prevail.

Speaking in Stirling over the weekend with her party’s new MPs, Ms Davidson said: “I’m going to make sure that along with the 13 MPs, we make sure that we deliver for Scotland and that the Union delivers for Scotland too.”
