Nicola Sturgeon: SNP would support Labour on an 'issue by issue' basis

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 05:07

Labour supporters in England would be "appalled" if their party allows the Tories back into government and rejects a "progressive alliance" with the SNP, Nicola Sturgeon has said.

One member of the BBC Question Time audience in Edinburgh asked whether the First Minister should "resign" given her pledge to make education her number one priority, claiming the country is now the "worst" in Britain and accusing the SNP leader of making "misjudgments" around tuition fees.

She said: "We fought an election to the Scottish Parliament previous year".

Responding to Ms Sturgeon's comments on Friday, Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale insisted Mr Corbyn had "absolutely 100% refuted any prospect of a deal, a coalition or a pact with the SNP".

She said: "The SNP is the only party who are serious about being that strong voice for Scotland - contesting every seat across the country while our opponents run lacklustre campaigns in just a smattering of seats".

Ms Sturgeon said she is "sceptical" about whether the need will arise for an informal deal though, as she predicted the Tories will win next week's election with a majority despite a narrowing in the polls.

Her answer raises fears she is pursuing a "neverendum" strategy, demanding new independence votes until she gets the result she wants.

We did that. We were then told that the United Kingdom is a family of nations and Scotland's voice would be heard, that the prime minister wouldn't trigger Article 50 until there had been a United Kingdom position.

But Miss Sturgeon that the Brexit referendum gives them a fresh reason to hold another vote.


The SNP leader said she had not changed her timetable for a second Scottish independence referendum.

She added that her daughter had been a "very determined" child, who announced she was going to become a lawyer aged five.

On Thursday Labour's Emily Thornberry said her party would try to form a minority government in the event of a hung parliament.

The poll of 1,093 people conducted between June 1 and 5 puts Scottish Labour up by six points on the last YouGov survey in May, with the Tories down three points and the SNP down one point.

Labour has firmly ruled out a coalition with other parties under those circumstances.

"The most likely outcome here is a Tory (Conservative) victory, but a Tory victory no longer certain of an increased majority", she said, discussing her reading of opinion polls.

"Not in a coalition, I don't envisage any formal coalitions, but on an issue-by-issue basis to put forward progressive policies and to see a progressive agenda".

Willie Rennie will use a campaign visit to East Dunbartonshire on Sunday to say they will "sweep the SNP out" and stop another divisive independence referendum.

Scotland's First Minister was also quizzed over her falling personal approval rating, which are the lowest they have been.
