Tony Miklinski told Express.co.uk that Nicola Sturgeon’s management will be under scrutiny in the next investigation involving Alex Salmond. Cupar’s Scottish Tory adviser has said that, as Ms Sturgeon will be under oath, it would be a damning indictment if she knew how Mr Salmond was behaving during his time at the SNP.

Mr Miklinski said: “The biggest threat to its leaders has to come in the near future from the Alex Salmond investigation.“He’s going to be sworn in.

“The fact that he was found not guilty by a criminal court does not mean that his behavior towards women was acceptable.

“If she knew this and didn’t do anything about it, then it’s an overwhelming act.

“This exposes the two wings of the party: the pro-Salmond and the pro-Sturgeon.

“I think there’s a lot of life left in it. ”

Ms Sturgeon told Holyrood during Prime Minister’s Questions this week that she was unaware that female civil servants had been told not to be alone with her predecessor, Mr Salmond.

Ms Sturgeon was responding to a question from Scottish Conservative MP Murdo Fraser.

Mr. Miklinski added: “The position of Nicola Sturgeon has always hampered the discipline of the SNP.

“There have been signs of this crackle for quite a while now. “

He continued, “The fact that they managed to keep him together for 14 years is to be admired.

“The discipline they had comes at a cost, it means when things start to go wrong you can end up with a cataclysmic failure. “
