Alex Salmond has dismissed Nicola Sturgeon’s plan to hold a second referendum on independence next year as “not particularly credible”.

The former First Minister – speaking ahead of the Alba Party conference at Hampden Park tomorrow – claimed the SNP had so far failed to launch any meaningful campaign ahead of such a vote.

He continued: “We had the legislation through, the date set, the preparations made…All the plans were in place as they could be, but none of that has [now] happened; not even the agreement to have the referendum in the first place…

“The idea of a referendum next year, for many people looking at it, doesn’t look particularly credible.
