No, not foolish. He may have allayed some fears stoked up by Tory press that he'll be in SNP's pocket. He still has the opportunity for a coalition with other parties, eg LibDems and will receive the...

Clegg said "reliant" and Milliband says he won't enter a deal with SNP, which rules out relying on SNP. So the LibDems could enter full coalition with Labour, and SNP would support whichever...

Has he? I seriously doubt that.

Ah, I see. I wasn't aware of those figures.

Anyway, I agree that getting parties with broadly compatible views to join a coalition is perfectly legitimate and far preferable to letting one party...

No, I think it costs Labour nothing and strengthens their position. Most Scottish voters really want to get rid of the Tories. Some may have drifted from Labour to SNP but now their best chance to...

I don't think so. He may or may not be on the 'right' of his party but very many party members wouldn't want opportunities of working with Labour to be overlooked, especially after last time. They...

I really don't know. If your assumption is based on respected professional polls in Clegg's constituency, then I certainly won't argue.

That makes no sense. Labour may have sufficient numbers with only SNP support but having others onside could help.

These things aren't (or shouldn't) be determined by childish grudges.

The same question occurred to me too, until I realised that by that time 'our' older people will have shuffled off. As the population gets older we do need fresh young workers. Maybe some people...

It's an interesting question. I assume lots of people can't get what they want by voting 'dumbly' under FPTP so we make the best of it and vote tactically.
