ALEX Salmond yesterday accused Nicola Sturgeon of failing Scotland.
And he claimed her allies plotted to kill off his career in a “malicious scheme”.
The former First Minister said Scotland was also not fit for independence with Ms Sturgeon as SNP leader.
His Scottish Parliament inquiry evidence exposed the bitter civil war between the former friends before elections which could lead to another referendum.
Allies of Miss Sturgeon face claims they tried to get ex-SNP chief Mr Salmond jailed over sex assaults. He was cleared at trial.
Yesterday, Mr Salmond said he had no doubt Ms Sturgeon broke the ministerial code by misrepresenting a meeting where the allegations against him first surfaced.
He insisted: “The government acted illegally but somehow nobody is to blame.
“Scotland hasn’t failed, its leadership has failed.”
Judges previously ruled the Scottish government’s probe into claims against Mr Salmond was “tainted with apparent bias”.
