Iain Dale told Good Morning Britain that if Alex Salmond can prove that Nicola Sturgeon lied, she will be under pressure to resign from her position as Scotland’s First Minister. Former SNP leader Alex Salmond is set to give evidence this afternoon during the start of the inquiry.  

Mr Dale said: “It could lead in theory and I am not exaggerating here, it could lead to the fall of Nicola Sturgeon if it is proved.
