Salmond and Sturgeon: What is the controversy all about?

Two of Scotland’s best known politicians are involved in a row which some people believe could force Nicola Sturgeon to quit as the country’s first minister. Who are Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon? The pair dominated Scottish politics for more than a decade, and led the campaign for Scotland to become independent from the UK.

NOW that the local elections in England are going ahead, I think it would be a safe bet to say that the Scottish Parliamentary elections in May will be cancelled just to give Nicola Sturgeon another opportunity to be different from the rest of the UK. David Bone, Girvan, Ayrshire
