What sort of Parliament?

Alex Salmond claims that a hung Parliament would be a ‘People’s Parliament’.  Er no, it would be a ‘Politicians’ Parliament’.   The people would not get much of a look-in during post-election bargaining.

    It sounds like a permanent state of wash-up…

    Maybe by “people” he means “certain people,” especially if those people are MPs in a minor political party in Westminster who would gain a lot of power if there was a hung parliament.

    Alex Salmond actually claims a hung Parliament maybe better for the Scottish people IF they have enough SNP MP`s.

    The smaller parties could make a difference in any such Parliament and have extra bargaining power.

    I’d like a hung parliament, the resulting stick-up that comes later would not be optimal for any party, which is fine by me.
