Labour quiet as Liberals offer SNP poison cup

The leader of the Liberal democrats in Scotland (Jim Wallace) passed the poison cup to Alex Salmond when he said the liberals WOULD forge a coalition with the SNP if the SNP dropped their pledge to make Scotland a free nation again.

Wallace said "The question Alex Salmond has to answer is, if it came to doing things that we could find common cause in promoting education or abolishing tuition fees or a range of other issues is he going to throw away that chance because he insists on a referendum on independence?"

IF THE SNP DO THIS THEY ARE NO BETTER THAN ANY LONDON BASED PARTY AND SCOTLAND WILL BE SHACKLED TO LONDON FOR LORD KNOWS HOW LONG
