These gatherings are normally held in seaside towns, so Ruth didn't even have too much sea air as an excuse for her claim that most Scots backed the welfare cuts.
The faithful in the hall liked it though, so tell them what they want to hear.
She didn't tell them one of the consequences is a 250% increase in people turning to food banks in the city she is an MSP for, or the fact that one in three are children.
The top reasons for seeking help at food banks is benefit delays, benefit changes (cuts) and low income, with an increasing number due to benefit sanctions. That is not what they want to hear.
Ruth had a plum spot, right before the main act, the Prime Minister, who gave his 'Land of Hope is Tory' rallying call.
His big announcement was under 25s will be effectively banned from claiming unemployment benefit. If you have no job, education or training place, then you can pick up litter or paint fences for benefit.
Sounds like community service, the same as if you are a shoplifter or a petty thug or vandal.
The Prime Minister says every young person should either be earning or learning, in a job or at college or on a training course. Now you are talking, I suspect a majority of Scots will back that.
Except, we keep hearing how there is a shortage of college places and thousands are waiting for their choice of course.
Why? Cuts, that's why.
So if we want to invest in this good idea, it's going to cost money and a lot of it, probably a lot more than giving them a high-viz vest and telling them to clean up the streets.
The message was that Mr Cameron, Mr Osborne and co. are clearing up the mess of the last government, which includes long term unemployment, leading to a big welfare bill.
A look back at the UK statistics for claimant count unemployment makes for interesting reading. Those under 25 and out of work for more than two years in May 1997 was 31,400. By 2005 it was down to below 1000 before it started to creep up and in May 2010 it was 2200. Latest figures put it at 25,000.
The conference heard of more than one million private sector jobs created since 2010. Maybe so but they don't appear to be going to the long-term unemployed.
Mr Cameron's crowd pleaser was routine where he pointed skywards listing achievements.
Jobs, up. Construction, up. Inward investment, up, he chanted. What he left out was, long term jobless, up. Food banks, up. Borrowing to buy food, up. Debt to pay day lenders up.
Again, that's not what they want to hear.
