The Scottish Tory leader posted a risqué photo of Gillian Anderson as her out-of-office message

Well, it’s certainly unorthodox.


RUTH DAVIDSON IS the leader of the Scottish Conservatives.

Last night, Davidson, who is engaged to Wexford woman Jen Wilson, announced that she was off for two weeks and bid farewell to her followers with a suggestive photo of Gillian Anderson.

“Right, I’m off for a fortnight,” she wrote. “In the mean time, here’s @GillianA just sitting round the house in stilettos & seamed stockings. As you do.”

Well now.

*fans self*

Some thought it was hilarious, if a little unorthodox, and questioned whether a male politician would have gotten away with sharing such a photo.

While her political foes accused her of objectifying Gillian Anderson.

And others suspected that it might have been a sly dig at the DUP, who oppose same sex marriage.

No word from Gillian Anderson on what she makes of it yet.
