An SNP/Tory coalition at Holyrood?
I'll be interested to read what Stuart has to say about this, if he chooses to discuss it. Apart from my generalised dislike for the idea of Scotland taking itself out of the 'United Kingdom', as I'm perfectly happy being British, my other generalised worry about the SNP has always been its seeming devotion to socialist ideals; a moving away from this aspect of their traditional policies would certainly make me look at them in a slightly more favourable light. I've been drafting and re-drafting a post on this kind of topic, in relation to the recent travails of the Scottish Conservatives, for some weeks, but have still not quite worked out what I think is going on in Scottish politics at present.
