The Red Line On The Yellow Peril

Ed Miliband needs to stand up at this week's Prime Minister's Questions, rule out any coalition with either UKIP or the Lib Dems after the Election, and challenge David Cameron to do likewise.


  1. Mr Cameron of course will not do so, and why should he? UKIP won't accept any formal Coalition, of course. Actual policies, not Ministers in the Cabinet is the objective of principled parties (the SNP never wanted Ministers in a Labour Coalition, but a 'confidence-and-supply' deal in which they get policies in exchange for supporting Labour in key votes, which Miliband has not ruled out, as everyone has noticed). Farage has made the terms of such a deal clear; he doesn't want Ministers he wants instant national sovereignty with an immediate referendum on withdrawal from the European Union and the European Court of Human Rights (held under fair terms and conditions) followed by an immediate ban on unskilled migrants and the ability for employers to discriminate on nationality.

    He should add to that the repeal of Tony Blair's 2006 law against the creation of new grammar schools.

    Cameron isn't in a position to turn anything down.

    1. And if you believe that, then you will believe absolutely anything.
