Sir John Major, the Conservative Prime Minister from 1990 until 1997, is to warn today of the dangers of an SNP-Labour coalition in a speech in the West Midlands.
He is expected to say:
“Labour would be in hock to a party that – slowly but surely – will push them ever further to the left. And who would pay the price for this? We all would. We would all pay for the SNP’s ransom in our daily lives – through higher taxes, fewer jobs, and more and more debt.”
Warning that the SNP would have a pro-nationalist agenda Major is also expected to say:
“That is no way to run a country. And nor is it remotely fair to England, Wales and Northern Ireland”.
