Salmond to quit as MP having not spoken in the House of Commons for 100 days? Did no-one see this coming? It's a PR shambles which could - and should - have been easily avoided.
Having been caught claiming an MPs salary (£60,000) as well as an MSPs (£53,000) as well as the First Ministers salary, Alex is munificently going to give up the MSPs salary (£77,000), which is lower than an MPs.
Nice work if you can get it.
The quote that, "Mr Salmond's office insist both sets of constituents knew his intention was to become first minister, which it said is his priority", is insulting to his constituents and a cack-handed indication that he doesn't intend to return to Westminster, despite drawing a salary.
No wonder the public despise politicians.
