Alex Salmond takes questions on oil price, Trump in first radio call-in show

Alex Salmond has been quizzed on the price of oil in his first phone-in show for LBC Radio. The former First Minister’s first caller, a man named Paul from St Albans, asked him how Scotland could still succeed independently at the current low oil price. He said: “You based your financial security in Scotland on the oil price of about $110 a barrel – I notice it’s trading at around $30. How would Scotland be now if you’d succeed in gaining independence?”

He said “serious questions” now needed to be asked about how the SNP administration “got this so badly wrong”.
