  1. … In 3 weeks, if Lab & the SNP have more MPs than Cameron, is Miliband really going to say he won’t work with us? …

    The Tories do not need to have more MPs than Labour and SNP combined.

    A severe hung parliament with no single party gaining 326 MPs minimum threshold, means the Tories, now in government, are obliged by the rules to remain in power in the UK parliament.

    The next idea is a Lib Dems – Labour – SNP coalition.

    Lib Dems are the gone party, with predictions as low as 19 MPs left.

    If SNP win all 59 seats in Scotland, Labour is reduced by 40 MPs.

    If Plaid Cymru win all 40 seats in Wales, the Tories reduced only by 8, the Lib Dems by 3 and Labour around 29 seats.

    Mebyon Kernow in Cornwall would reduce 6 Tory and Lib Dems seats.

    Far better for the SNP is to promote (do a deal) with TUSC (Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition).

    If SNP win all 59 seats in Scotland and ever goes independent, it will be a single party state and so not a democracy. It will need an opposition in the Scottish parliament.

    TUSC is running in 113 seats in England.

    If SNP helped the campaign funds of TUSC in England and any TUSC running against Labour or Lib Dems in Scotland.

    Then you get:

    113 TUSC
    100 per cent anti austerity MPs in UK parliament.

    SNP still a kingmaker but in an anti austerity majority government, far more help to the Scots.

    40 Plaid Cymru in all of Wales reduces Tories by 8, Lib Dems by 3 and Labour by around 29 MPs.

    TUSC is running a few candidates in Wales.

    Again a much-devolved Wales would need an opposition in the Welsh Assembly.


    The Tories will remain in power because that is the rules in a severe hung UK parliament of predicted polling of:

    277 Labour

    264 Tories

    28 Lib Dems

    But if the Lib Dems were mostly gone,
    Tories and Labour cut and
    most of the seats gained by TUSC and SNP and Plaid Cymru and Mebyon Kernow in Cornwall.

    Then we have a powerful UK parliament

    With the Tories and Lib Dems put into a minority opposition in the UK parliament.

    A group of parties can negotiate equally with each other and not just Labour, to reach the minimum threshold of UK parliament to rule of 326 MPs.

    A democracy must have a government and an opposition across the floor of the House of Commons.

    Right now we are looking at single party dictatorships in every region of the UK.


    How the poor 75 per cent of all voters could change everything on Thursday 7 May /
    How ensure registered to vote (have only til Monday April 20th – 16-18 year olds can vote in Scotland)

  2. Chris, we know that is not going to happen, it’s far too late for that. If nobody wins a majority then if Cameron insists on staying in power then another election will be called. In Scotland we have just ONE conservative MP and hopefully that seat will be gone in May.
    Labour have lost all respect in Scotland and whilst Murphy is the “leader” they will never gain more seats, or have anything credible to offer us.
    When, not if, we become an Independent country we will have other parties to vote for, we have the Greens, we have the SSP and I’m sure another party would start up so we will have democracy – the Scots know more about politics than any other country and we would NOT allow a dictatorship.
    There is a huge change in politics happening and it’s about time. This is down to the SNP and I feel proud that I am a member.
