Salmond pummelled by Darling on currency question

Better Together leader Alistair Darling danced rings around SNP leader Alex Salmond last night in a tour de force of rhetoric from the former chancellor as he exposed Salmond’s lack of answers on the currency an independent Scotland would use. The SNP leader said all the mainstream Westminster parties were bluffing in denying Scotland could continue to be part of a Sterling currency with the rest of the UK should they vote Yes on 18th September as the Labour MP taunted him saying even an 8 year old would have an answer. Salmond was booed by the studio audience as time and time again he failed to reveal his Plan B.
