  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Salmond accuses Sturgeon of lying at Holyrood committee” – below is their description.

    For 11 months, he said nothing in public. Last March, Scotland’s former first minister was acqutted at a criminal trial of 13 charges of sexual assault.

    Then he was also awarded more than half a million pounds after he successfully challenged the lawfulness of a Scottish government investigation.

    Today the silence ended as we got a quietly spoken but furious attack on his successor Nicola Sturgeon.

    Why does all this matter? Because we’re just weeks away from elections in which the SNP will try and win a mandate for a new independence referendum.
