Comment posted SNH warns motorists of deer on the roads by Tim McIntyre.

Is it a coincidence that the advert banner at the top of this article is for an ambulance-chasing lawyer outfit?

Maybe there is a good living to be made from suing dead deer…

  • Forget tactical voting for unity. Forget the coming of the one-party state. Your party matters more?
    Newsroom – re: the “wholly constitutionally disadvantaged position of England”, Derek Bateman has a good piece on that subject;-

    Integrity – I’m sure you are right that the convention is informal, and obviously the parties can talk to each other as they wish – as the Lib Dems did with Labour last time. However, I assume that in practice, David Cameron would try every option to form a government and would not resign until these had been exhausted (as Gordon Brown did last time, despite coming a distant second). Only then would the SNP’s offer to Labour come into play.

    John M – the SNP cannot ‘vote down’ a Tory government which has managed to assemble majority support – the key phrase in your quote being “if there is an anti-Tory majority”

    Newsroom, I think you are right that stability could be a problem, especially as the Tory press in the south will do everything possible to de-stabilise a SNP-supported minority Labour government. If they can portray it as illegitimate that Labour gets to govern while the Tories got a majority in England, they will do so, loudly and insistently, and regardless of the damage to the Union.

    John, the reason why I said you were winding me up is that you surely aren’t suggesting that Labour would be unable to get a Queen’s Speech through parliament solely because of the actions of its own rebel MPs?

    Can you imagine the headlines: “Salmond pleads with Labour rebels to let Ed Miliband into No. 10″

    Hi Integrity – I believe the convention in a hung parliament is that the sitting government gets the first opportunity to try & negotiate a deal and get it through a Queen’s Speech vote. So the Tories will get first go at creating a coalition anyway, even if they don’t have the most seats, and if they succeed, that will be that.

    All the SNP have said is that they would not be part of a Tory-led government, formally or informally, but would be willing to support a Labour Queen’s Speech and then a Labour government on a vote-by-vote basis. That position, which has been unequivocally stated throughout, seems fair enough to me – I don’t think they have said they would try to block the Tories from trying to form a government first, and anyway it’s not clear how they would do so.

    OK John, so I’ve finally, and perhaps belatedly, realised that you are winding me up :-)
