Nigel Farage Challenges Ruth Davidson To An Immigration Debate Live On-Air

Scottish Conservative Leader Drives A Tank

Scottish Conservative Leader Drives A Tank

Ms Davidson questioned Theresa May's goal of reducing net migration below 100,000.

"Because the party that you represent in 2010, in the general election, in 2015, in the general election and in 2017, in this snap general election - in all three manifestos pledged to reduce net migration to tens of thousands a year".

Leaving the European Union was "a big reset button" for the issue and should make it easier for the government to get to grips on the issue, she added.

She said: "But we have to ask whether the target continues to be the right one?"Before pointing out economic growth faced "even greater limitations".

The Charles Schwab Corporation (SCHW) Stake Decreased by Capital One National Association
IBM Retirement Fund's holdings in The Charles Schwab Corporation were worth $1,392,000 at the end of the most recent quarter. Following the sale, the chief financial officer now owns 196,708 shares of the company's stock, valued at $9,182,329.44.

The Scottish Conservative leader today argued immigration had made the United Kingdom "better" and warned the party would fail to connect with younger voters if it was seen to be anti-migrant.

Opponents claimed the Tories were in "open warfare" over the UK's immigration target after senior cabinet figures appealed to the Prime Minister to ease the target earlier this year.

Her remarks indicate a clear split with the Conservative government's policy as Theresa May has stuck by both the target and the inclusion of students in the numbers, despite the reservations of some of her senior colleagues.

Davidson added: "Neither of the major parties of government has sought to have a meaningful and sustained discussion with the public about the merits and drawbacks of immigration".

Minnesota Timberwolves New Uniforms Unveiled
The Fitbit logo and the Nike Swoosh sit within the top stripe of both uniforms, just above the team name. The home team will select a jersey first and the away team will choose a contrasting thread.

In the article, Ms Davidson argued "there is nothing so Conservative as pulling your loved ones close and striving to build a better future for your family, which is what so many immigrants do".

Younger, urban voters, who have rejected the Tories are "more likely to be either immigrants themselves, or have a number of non-British nationals within their family or social groups", she pointed out.

The intervention is a sign of the Scottish Conservative leader flexing her muscles after she led 13 Tory MPs to victory north of the border at the election, allowing May to run a minority government based on her deal with the DUP.

"Brexit threatens to be economically disastrous for Scotland, and it seems Ruth Davidson is only now waking up to that fact".

Tesla Model S runs 670 miles without recharging
Musk also said that he would be disappointed if they don't bring the cost below $100 per kWh by the end of the decade. But the newly minted noteholders might find Musk's mothership isn't much help to them if Tesla lands on hard times .

Davidson, a strong Remain supporter in the lead up to the referendum last June, called for a "grown up conversation" on migration.
