A leading Scottish Conservative has said that “if even half” of what Nicola Sturgeon is being accused of is true she should resign as the country’s First Minister. Murdo Fraser, who sits on the Scottish Parliament committee investigating the government's handling of harassment complaints against former First Minister Alex Salmond, said that if true the claims were fatal for her leadership. The Conservative MSP said: “If even half of what Alex Salmond claimed yesterday was true it’s absolutely devastating for Nicola Sturgeon and her leadership of the Scottish National Party.” Mr Fraser added: “If even half of what he alleged yesterday turns out to be true, and we will get to the bottom of this very soon, then Nicola Sturgeon’s position is untenable and she will have to resign”. Mr Salmond told the committee on Friday that he had "no doubt" that Ms Sturgeon had breached the ministerial code by her handling of meetings she held with him to discuss complaints made against him by two female civil servants.
