Luckily, leader of the Scottish Tories, Ruth Davison, has been providing enough entertainment for everyone.  Over the last few weeks she has been picturing grinning with a trout, playing the bagpipes, being the caller a bingo and mocking Alex Salmond by feeding a BuzzFeed journalist a solero – yet she has managed to strike the perfect balance between  showing her cheerful, human side and running a serious campaign.
