Speaking to GB News host Dan Wootton Alan Cochrane said the nationalist party were “in deep trouble” and “haven’t got a hope in Hell” of getting a second independence referendum. In response to Liz Truss’s comments that Nicola Sturgeon was “attention-seeking” Mr Cochrane said the comments weren’t an insult to Scotland. 

He argued that Ms Sturgeon needed to stop portraying herself as “mother Scotland” as it was a “political spat”.

Mr Cochrane added that the First Minister’s main worry would be if she can “get on the telly tomorrow morning”.

He said: “I find this very amusing.

“I mean the SNP, they’re in the intensive care unit about their plans for independence.

“They haven’t got a hope in hell of getting either their IndyRef2 or any success out of it.

“The idea that anything that Liz Truss has said is damaging to the SNP’s case, they’re already in deep trouble and what we must remember is the idea that this is an insult to Scotland.

“This is Nicola again portraying herself again as mother Scotland, [but] this was a pure political spat between two politicians.

“Big girls with good tough policies to sell Liz Truss and Nicola Sturgeon.

The idea that Nicola will lie awake at night worrying about this, the only thing she’ll worry about is if she can get on the telly tomorrow morning.”

It comes as Deputy First Minister John Swinney has blasted Ms Truss for her comments about his political ally, branding them “obnoxious”.

Speaking to BBC Scotland Mr Swinney said the comments made by Ms Truss during Conservative leadership hustings on Monday were “utterly unacceptable”.

He said: “Unionist campaigners suggest that Scotland should be at the heart of the United Kingdom.

“How Scotland can be expected to be at the heart of the United Kingdom when the democratically elected leader of our country is, in the view of the person most likely to be the next prime minister of the UK, somebody that should be ignored is completely and utterly unacceptable.

“So, I think Liz Truss has with one silly intemperate intervention fundamentally undermined the argument that she tries to put forward that Scotland somehow can be fairly and well treated at the heart of the United Kingdom.”
