Alex Salmond Chuffed

A "fake news" tweet from an SNP MP about Theresa May led to Alex Salmond giving LBC's Iain Dale an ear-bashing - not that Iain is one for backing down.

"You should condemn this, you should condemn this!" insisted Iain. "It's an absolute disgrace!"

"I've never heard such faux outrage in all my life," is Alex Salmond's response to a very angry Iain Dale.

This is the Tweet he was taking about - or a screenshot of it, since Monaghan has deleted it in the meantime:

The Tweet, imitating an official government message, claimed our "standing in the world" would decline because of Brexit and Britain would become a "bitter tax haven".

It also takes aim at "xenophobic media" and "Nigel Farage".

Iain Dale wanted Salmond to answer for the Tweet: "What a disgraceful piece of fake news that is!"

The former First Minister wasn't buying Iain's reaction though: "It's a desperate attempt to whip yourself up into a sense of outrage...I know you're in the United States, but [try] a five letter word called irony...I've never heard such faux outrage in all my life Iain!"

Pressed more by Iain though, Salmond lost his cool a little, telling the presenter to "get a life for goodness' sake!"
