Alex Salmond is reaching his “sell-by” date, according to for-mer Scottish, foreign, and defence secretary Sir Malcolm Rifkind.

Sir Malcolm raised questions over the SNP’s drive to leave the UK, while remaining committed to sharing sovereignty with Brussels as part of the EU.

He told Holyrood magazine: “I have noticed that when anyone asks him a question on a serious issue like Europe, whether that’s from other politicians or from journalists about what will happen about x, y or z, he just attacks the person and doesn’t answer the question.”
