Labour cannot escape SNP's embrace if it is to form a government

Ed Miliband is desperate to put some distance between his party and the SNP but has been undermined by his own shadow cabinet, some of whom have made it clear that this is unrealistic if they are to form a government.

Now the Telegraph has published internal SNP documents setting out how they will broker a deal with Labour and where they share common ground.

This is all very sensible of course and I am sure the Liberal Democrats have done the same. Indeed we have already set out red lines for coalition talks.

This is the reality we may be facing this time next week. However, what the actual outcome is will depend on the voters.
There is no embrace, no poison chalice, Ed has been quite specific, "No deals", SNP or Plaid.
