UK General Election 2017: Coalition of Chaos

Dirty deals in the air: Sturgeon's anti-Tory plot grows as Greens urge Labour and the Lib Dems to consider agreements on tactical voting

  • Tories warning of ‘coalition of chaos’ between the SNP, Labour and the Lib Dems
  • SNP leader accused of plotting to install the Labour leader as prime minister
  • Labour or Lib Dems would win in more than a dozen Tory seats with vote share

Signs of rival parties forming an anti-Tory movement that could help put Jeremy Corbyn into Downing Street were growing last night.

It came as the Conservatives, in their first campaign poster of the election, warned of a ‘coalition of chaos’ between the SNP, Labour and the Lib Dems.

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon has already been accused of plotting to install the Labour leader as prime minister in exchange for getting a second referendum on Scottish independence.

And fears that an alliance of Left-wing parties could unite to stop Theresa May returning to power increased after the Greens wrote to Mr Corbyn and Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron yesterday to offer electoral pacts.

In more than a dozen Tory held seats, Labour or the Liberal Democrats would win if all those who voted Green at the last election switched their vote.

Molly Scott Cato, Green MEP for south-west England and Gibraltar, said the party’s co-leaders, Jonathan Bartley and Caroline Lucas, have written to Mr Corbyn and Mr Farron to urge them to consider agreements on tactical voting ‘to move beyond the tribal politics of the past and cooperate for the sake of the country’.
