Bella interviews Alex Salmond
We kick-off the first of a series of interviews in the run-up to the Holyrood elections discussing Brexit, the indyref, the oil figures and the currency question with Alex Salmond.
Salmond responds to the remarks of former Bank of England Governor Mervyn King in his new book, The End of Alchemy. In the book Mr King accuses the No campaign of being “misleading” in their suggestion that the use of sterling would have presented any serious difficulty. He says:
“To admit that there was a simple and straightforward answer to the currency question would have undermined its argument that independence would be an economic disaster. That proposition was always implausible. There are many small successful countries in the world and there is no reason why Scotland could not have joined them.” Watch the full interview here:
