Commenting on a damning analysis of the SNP from Alex Bell, a former senior aide to Alex Salmond, Jim Hume Scottish Liberal Democrat MSP for South Scotland said:
"Immoral fools with no credible alternative is a powerful condemnation from someone who knows the SNP leadership well. As Alex Salmond's former top adviser he has seen the SNP leadership operate and does not like it.
"No matter what Nicola Sturgeon says in public we now know she has no plan to help poor people, close the fiscal gap, reverse privatisations or reverse Tory trade union laws."
