Sure, it’s the Torygraph saying it, but the prediction by a University of Strathclyde Academic would put David Cameron firmly back in Downing Street – and Scottish Independence firmly on the back-burner.
The Conservative and Unionist Party of Great Britain and Northern Ireland isn’t going to let the SNP have its way!
Meanwhile, Scottish Labour has proposed further devolution for Scotland, indicating that Labour did not think ‘The Vow’, created by the main Westminster parties together, goes far enough.
Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy detailed his party’s plan, which included;
- Clearer powers to vary social security benefits
- Wider responsibilities for tackling unemployment
- Devolution of the £1.8bn housing benefits system
- And devolution of power to local communities from Holyrood and Westminster
He claimed these would go further than the cross-party promises for Scotland.
What a choice for Scottish Nationalists!
Support the party that wants independence and find yourself further from it, or support the party the SNP has been damning since the referendum, and get closer to what you want.
What are you going to do?
Of course, the Torygraph could be wrong…
