Ms Davidson also criticised the SNP over its approach to the Common Fisheries Policy and EU membership.

She said: “This has been the SNP’s week of chaos. Nicola Sturgeon made a laughing stock of herself by claiming her campaign had nothing to do with independence.

“She was forced into a U-turn after Alex Salmond popped up to say that’s all it’s about.”
