A couple of quotes from Dan Hodges' keenly-awaited New Year address to the nation, which this year is on the thrillingly novel topic of "why Ed Miliband won't be Prime Minister". (Good to see him expanding his range.)
"The idea of a “Nat Pact” has become the talk of Westminster. The odds on Sturgeon entering the cabinet have been slashed to 6-1."
"Those speculating about a Labour/SNP deal do not understand the basic psychology of how politics operates north of the border."
So a man who thinks that a Labour/SNP deal would somehow involve Nicola Sturgeon becoming a UK Cabinet minister, even though she is not standing as a candidate for Westminster, is lecturing others about their failure to understand Scottish politics. Righty-ho.
I dare say it all makes sense in Hodges' head, and probably has something to do with Princess Diana.
