Any 'victory' will be pyrrhic. I am more surprised at Sturgeon thinking she could take on Salmond in the first place.
Yet another example of Mammy's bad decision making especially as she was Salmond's protege.
Don't think she had a choice. This internal SNP conflict seems to have been triggered by the accusations of sexual assaults.
If they had been ignored she'd would have been out before now.
However it has allowed factions within SNP/Yes movement to align between independence now and those willing to wait.
