MEDIA tycoon Rupert Murdoch has praised First Minister Alex Salmond on Twitter as the “most brilliant politician” in the UK.

The Australian said that the First Minister had given David Cameron the “back of his hand” during the latest independence referendum spat.

Mr Murdoch’s latest move to lavish the SNP leader with compliments comes just weeks after he previously heaped on Mr Salmond on Twitter, saying “Great to see Alex Salmond Briton of the year.”
