The former SNP leader, Alex Salmond, lost his cool on LBC today when asked about the falling support for Scottish independence.

Mr. Salmond seems to be in serious denial over the lack of support for Scottish Independence.

Recent polls also show the SNP losing around ten seats to the Conservatives in the upcoming General Election on June 8th.

Ian Dale ripped into Mr. Salmond after the Kantar Opinion Monitor revealed 60 per cent of Scottish voters backed staying in the UK, after a five-point drop in support for independence since the 2014 vote.

The LBC host said: “The consultation finished in January, we are now at the end of April and the Scottish Government still hasn’t responded to it.

“Voters on June 8th won’t know the path to independence. Why doesn’t she give her views on it?”

Salmond responded to the LBC host calling him a “pernickety man” who was bringing up a “nothing point”.

The Scottish Conservative leader, Ruth Davison, has blasted the SNP and Nicola Sturgeon for their “Narrow-minded” independence views.

The SNP currently holds 56 seats in parliament, but polls show this could drop to 46 with the conservatives gaining 10 seats in areas where people voted to leave the EU and stay members of the United Kingdom.

Mrs. May has been said to have the highest approval ratings over a Prime Minister, beating Margret Thatcher and Tony Blair.

I do struggle to understand the logic behind the SNPs policies. They wish to remain members of the European Union but do not want to remain part of the United Kingdom.

They strive for independence but have no problem with the EU taking it away from them.
