SCOTLAND is being run like a “tin-pot dictatorship” amid the SNP’s “poisonous infighting”, Liam Fox said last night.
The Tory grandee blasted warring nationalists Nicola Sturgeon and Alex Salmond, claiming they could bring shame to the entire country.
Mr Fox, who was born in East Kilbride and worked as a GP in Glasgow, told the Commons the row risks bringing “politics in the whole of the United Kingdom into international disrepute”.
It comes as civil war threatens to engulf Ms Sturgeon’s SNP Government.
It has been claimed her allies and her husband tried to have her predecessor and ex-pal Salmond sent to jail over sex allegations.
He was charged and later cleared of all the claims.
Earlier this week, Mr Salmond said there had been a “malicious and concerted attempt” to damage his reputation and to have him removed from public life in Scotland.
Mr Fox lashed out after Scottish ministers ordered damning evidence from Mr Salmond to be pulled down from the internet.
And he said remarks made by Mr Salmond towards the Scottish Government would be a “damning indictment in a tin-pot dictatorship”.
Mr Salmond is set to make what could be an explosive appearance at an inquiry into how the Scottish Government bungled a series of complaints against him, tomorrow.
