MEP in call for Labour coali­tion

The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - NEWS -

A Scot­tish Labour MEP has called for the ground­work to be laid for a pos­si­ble coali­tion be­tween the party and the SNP at Holy­rood.

David Martin said while the prospect may seem “un­think­able” to many, signs of in­creas­ing co-op­er­a­tion be­tween the two par­ties had been grow­ing.

He said: “There are sig­nals, very weak sig­nals, the real hate – and it was hate – be­tween Labour and the SNP is be­gin­ning to weaken.

“I would not quite say there is a rap­proche­ment but there is more pos­si­bil­ity of co-op­er­a­tion and work­ing to­gether than in a long time.”

A Scot­tish Labour spokesman said: “We do not sup­port a deal, pact or coali­tion with the SNP.”
