Have you ever wondered what Scotland's longest-serving First Minister really thinks? Well, now’s your chance. Alex Salmond, unleashed from the restraints of public office, will appear at Edinburgh’s Assembly Rooms for a bit of light-hearted banter and a few behind the scenes revelations about his time in power.
Robert Salmond, the father of former First Minister Alex Salmond, has died at Erskine Home for ex-servicemen. In his 96th year, the father-of-four was an inspiration for all of his family, including five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Indeed he has two of his children standing for election this week, Alex in Aberdeenshire and Gail in the Scottish Borders by- election.
