Since the second division leaders’ debate last week, The SNP’s Mad Wee Hag Nicola Sturgeon has been leading the news every day. With Labour facing wipeout by the nationalists in Scotland, according to polling figures, the possibility of a Labour / SNP coalition along the lines of the Conservative / Lib Dem coalition that has governed since 2010 has become the obsession of the media.
Few are sanguine about the prospect, the SNP are Europhile, spendthrift, globalist Marxists whose political position on the relationship between Scotland and England makes Pol Pot look moderate.
Sturgeon has tried laid to offer Ed Miliband a deal that would put him in Downing Street for just as long as he was prepared to accept all the SNP’s outrageous demands for special treatment for Scotland in relation to England and Wales. So far Ed, sensing the likely backlash from English voters has not said yes, although he has not rejected such an arrangement completely.
The SNP leader demanded Mr Miliband replace the Tories with something better and not just the “Tories light” before she would throw her support behind him. This means she wants labour to abandon their pledge to show greater fiscal responsibility than they did last time when the country was only days away from needing a Greek style IMF bail out by the time the party was thrown out of office.
Setting out her key conditions for working with Labour, Ms Sturgeon said the Labour leader needed to be “bolder” in fighting austerity and she could not support his spending cuts.
And she made clear she would not support paying £100bn to retain the Trident nuclear deterrent saying she would rather spend the money on childcare, education and the health service.
In other words, were there to be a Labour /SNP government, Ed Miliband would have the job title but The Mad Wee Hag Nicola Sturgeon would be pulling the strings.
Miliband leading Labour into the wilderness
Labour no longer the party of beer and pies
Labour out of the closet – party of elitism and authoritarianism
The left do not have a petent on goodness and compassion
