Milliband doesn't need a deal with the SNP - Ian McWhirter in todays Sunday Herald has described a convincing Scenario where a Tory minority Queens Speech falls, the House fails to vote for another GE with the required 2/3 majority, Labour puts forward a legislative programme that the Liberals have to support in the spirit of a grand coalition excluding the SNP, but the guts of which are fully compliant with the SNP manifesto allowing them to support it in the main. But the SNP can still claim to have locked out the Tories, and still make common cause with relevant groupings. Let's see.
Keep up the good work, MM. I was out yesterday in the sunshine and had a day off to-day. Some of the others were leafleting to-day, dodging hailstones. The response and the interest is heartening.
A friend has been out canvassing in his constituency of Edinburgh East both yesterday and today, and in fact has been involved since campaigning began. General response has been very encouraging. In fact they were told the other day that Labour have all but give up because their candidate feels 'too dispirited' to continue, but they're well aware that this could just be a ploy to lull potential SNP voters into a false sense of complacency so will continue to work as hard as they can.
