It follows on from his party’s conference last week where they called for the “immediate establishment” of an independence convention.

In his speech, Salmond (pictured above) said the UK Government was “running scared” of a second independence referendum because none of the arguments made in 2014 still hold up.

McAllan (pictured below) has been the MSP for Clydesdale since 2021 and was recently given her first post in Cabinet when Humza Yousaf unveiled his new team.
