Nicola Sturgeon Supports the Tories…Said No One Ever, Herself Included

Nicola_Sturgeon

Just days after ‘winning’ the only televised debate among the seven main party leaders, the SNP’s Nicola Sturgeon has been accused of supporting the Tories.

According to a Daily Telegraph report, during a meeting with French ambassador Sylvie Bermann, Sturgeon made clear her desire to see David Cameron serve another five years in Downing Street. The idea seems so absurd it couldn’t possibly be true, especially given the threats facing Scottish voters if the Conservatives have their way. It could be argued that it would bolster the SNP’s rhetoric over independence, though there is no proof of that mindset, and furthermore polls suggest that the Nationalists don’t need to resort to such tactics to get votes.

Sturgeon responded to the article immediately, calling it “categorically 100% untrue,” a stance which was echoed by French officials. Nonetheless, the idea was already in the air, and her opponents were just as quick to take advantage. Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy stated that the Telegraph article “exposes the uncomfortable truth behind the SNP’s General Election campaign,” and that “the SNP say one thing in public but another private.”

Meanwhile, English citizens have recently been wondering if they can vote for the Scottish Nationalists. They obviously can’t, but the fact that they’re asking is significant, indicating how dull and like-minded the three traditional parties have become in recent years. Sturgeon is the only one who stands out, despite her politics primarily dealing with Scotland. The closest the rest of the UK can get is to vote indirectly via Ed Miliband, the only possible prime minister likely to make a deal with the SNP.

Luckily for the Scots however, they can instead vote for their party directly.

    • Thanks for your comment. I agree that this “leak” is crap, and I admire how easily people figured it out. I doubt if the other leaders could handle a similar smear in the same way.

        • Happy Easter to you as well! Nicola is definitely proving to be a strong candidate, and I don’t question why her support has spread beyond Scotland. She may very well end up helping England and Wales indirectly by standing up for Scots. It will be a great next few years indeed.
