TORY boss Ruth Davidson is refusing to be interviewed by the BBC, the corporation has claimed.

The Scots Tory chief’s reluctance to put herself forward for scrutiny was revealed by Gary Robertson, the host of BBC Radio Scotland’s Good Morning Scotland.

He tweeted: “#bbcgms requested to speak to @RuthDavidsonMSP this morning but we were told she wasn’t available today or this week. We’ve had a longstanding request for an interview over recent weeks. The Scottish Conservatives say she will be available at the Tory party conference.”

Adam Morris, the head of media for the Scottish Conservatives tweeted back to Robertson, accusing him of “pandering to deranged cybernats”.

“Absolute piffle,” replied Good Morning Scotland editor Allan Price. “It’s all about transparency with the audience, nothing more”.

SNP Brexit minister Michael Russell tweeted: “Scottish Tory meltdown continues. Earlier @Murdo_Fraser tried to blame @theSNP for the possibility of a no deal #Brexit. Now their Head of Media responds to request from a BBC presenter for an interview with his party leader in Scotland with a hysterical claim about cybernats.”

It’s not the first time the BBC have been rebuffed in their requests for an interview with Davidson.

Back in July, during a feature on the so-called dark money scandal, Robertson said they had asked Davidson to come on air and answer questions about donations made to the party by the Scottish Unionist Association Trust.

The programme asked her a second time later that month and again she refused.

Earlier this month, the party were forced to deny reports Davidson was planning a move to London in a bid to become the next leader of the UK party.

According to The Sun, Davidson had told some of her friends she sees moving to the English capital to take up a Cabinet position as a stepping stone to becoming the leader of the Tory party.

The reports suggest that the current Scottish Tory leader could make the move as early as next year.

“This simply isn’t the case,” a spokesman said. “Ruth wants to be First Minister”.
