Senior Tories are pushing for Alistair Darling to be sidelined as head of the campaign to keep Scotland in the UK, amid growing concerns about his ‘dismal’ performance.
Those close to David Cameron think he is useless. This comes as the Yes Campaign surges in recent opinion polls. The Tories want someone more charismatic to lead the charge against Mr Salmond. As Bitter Together takes its marching orders from London I would not bet on Mr Darling lasting much longer.
Disgraced former Tory Shadow Minister Patrick Mercer could be the first MP in more than 60 years to be kicked out of the Commons without committing a criminal offence.
Parliamentary standards watchdogs are now considering demanding his expulsion over ‘grave’ new allegations against him breaching Commons rules.
