The Scottish parliament is investigating the government's mishandling of sexual harassment allegations against the former first minister Alex Salmond, In this special episode, we discuss the implications for current first minister Nicola Sturgeon and the independence movement. Bloomberg's senior editor Rodney Jefferson lays out the background from Edinburgh.

Jackie Baillie MSP, interim leader of Scottish Labour and a member of the inquiry tells Bloomberg Westminster's Caroline Hepker and Roger Hearing that the SNP is tearing itself apart and the toxicity of that is affecting Scotland's democratic institutions.

Plus Alyn Smith, SNP MP for Stirling admits there were failings in the handling of complaints and that this is a 'grim' and 'unedifying' state of affairs, but opponents have leapt on the issue. Smith adds that the impact on independence and on the SNP's popularity have been overstated.
