MEP in call for Labour coalition
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.”
