George Galloway has issued an extraordinary warning to Scotland that the country is on the brink of “potential civil war”. Speaking on his show MOATs on RT UK, Mr Galloway branded nationalists as responsible for a “swirling whirlpool of nationalist tension” in Scotland. He added the SNP are racked with “lawlessness”, “conspiracy” and “incompetence” on a scale “never before seen”. And in the most shocking admission yet he went on to say how this dangerous strategy legacy led to a man threatening “to shoot me in the head three times”.
In the extraordinary speech, Mr Galloway told viewers: “My country of Scotland badly needs a time out from the fervent, fervid, swirling whirlpool of nationalist tension.”
He said how Scottish nationalists have deployed “a strategy of tension.”
And in his starkest warning yet he stressed how the nationalist strategy has “taken us over the brink into the language of potential civil war.”
He went on to blame the SNP for leading Scotland into “lawlessness, of conspiracy, of incompetence” on a scale “never before seen in the annals of any devolved government anywhere in the world in all history.”

But in his most terrifying admission, Mr Galloway claimed nationalists have drummed up civil war language so badly that a man threatened “to shoot me in the head.”
The former Labour MP said: “A man, a soldier, a former soldier, a man who knew how to operate weapons, who knows maybe how to get weapons.
“Threatened three times to shoot me in the head.”
He added how he had to bundle his terrified wife and children into a car to get them away to safety.

George Galloway’s extraordinary statements come as First Minister Nicola Sturgeon survived a no-confidence vote on her leadership.
On Tuesday, MSPs voted 65 to 31 to back the First Minister in a no-confidence which has saved her political career for the moment.
The vote came shortly after an independent inquiry by top QC James Hamilton concluded Nicola Sturgeon did not knowingly break the ministerial code.
In response to the chaos that has unfolded over the last three weeks, Ms Sturgeon said while she “may not have got everything right” in her handling of the inquiry into Alex Salmond’s harassment allegations she insisted she “acted appropriately” and made “the right judgements overall”.

Prior to the no-confidence vote which was brought by Scottish Conservative MSPs, the committee investigating Ms Sturgeon found “she has misled the Committee on this matter” over when she first knew about harassment complaints against Alex Salmond.
The report stated: “The Committee notes that there is a fundamental contradiction in the evidence in relation to whether, at the meeting on 2 April 2018, the First Minister did or did not agree to intervene.
“Taking account of the competing versions of events, the Committee believes that she did in fact leave Mr Salmond with the impression that she would, if necessary, intervene.”
The Committee said it was a “potential breach of the Ministerial Code under the terms of section 1.3.”
