Thanks, SNP

Have your say

Throughout their predominantly “anti-Tory” campaign the SNP hierarchy constantly urged Scots to vote SNP and, in so doing, lock the Tories out of Downing Street.

This strategy, along with the one repeatedly urging Labour to do some kind of deal, was a misjudged disaster that played into the hands of the Conservatives in the rest of the UK. I hope Mr Cameron writes to Ms Sturgeon and Mr Salmond and thanks them for their invaluable contributions to his victory.
