As I thought, Sturgeon wants a Tory government to give her even more impetus to break up the UK.Many Tories would also like to get rid of Scotland from the Union.What an unholy unpatriotic alliance.vote Labour and save the UK.

As the SNP has specifically told us they would vote down a Conservative Queens Speech, however low President Sturgeons opinion of Ed Milliband may privately be that is what they will do.
It would be electoral suicide in Scotland not to.
As to whether an unelected Tartan Raj is less divisive than an elected UK Government the Scots happen not to like, not much in it .

UK Sussex Scot thanks for confirming that the story can be traced back to the Labour party.

The SNP will only have any power because of the crazy FTTP system. They'll get a few percentage points of the vote and 50+ seats, whereas the lib dems will get five or six times as many votes and struggle to get 20 odd.
Maybe some of those in the political mainstream might be wishing, now, that we'd gone for PR....
