My answer to Alex Salmond’s hung Parliament demands – give us our money back

I gather that Alex Salmond has been setting out the Scottish Nationalist Party’s demands in the event of a hung UK Parliament after the next General Election.

I hope the other political parties will have the guts to tell him where to go in the unlikely event of there being a hung Parliament after the next General Election.

The SNP have got to stop regarding the rest of the UK as a cash cow with a duty to subsidise Scotland whilst proclaiming that they want to be independent.

Salmond says his support will depend on capital projects “blocked” by Westminster being funded.  I trust the unanimous response of the other parties will be: “Thank you, but we’ll have the £22 billion annual subsidy we give you back first.”

  1. There are various scenarios which are covered by a “hung parliament” of course.

    If there are 40 Lib Dems, 30 others and Lab and Cons are tied, who can believe that Clegg would turn down being Home Sec (albeit he might split his party) in a Tory Government which promised a referendum on PR and various other matters?

    There are many more situations where Salmond is rolled over than makes demands which might occasion threatening to stop his cheques.

    I wish there was more pleasure to be had from his rolling whinges . . .
