Election 2017: Tories should drop migration target, says Osborne’s Evening Standard – live

17 May

I think when we’ve got one of Jeremy Corbyn’s closest allies, perhaps his very closest ally, Len McCluskey, effectively saying Labour’s not going to win this election and it’s all about damage limitation, then we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that if you want MPs that are going to hold the Tories to account, be an effective opposition and stand up for Scotland’s interests, then that in Scotland can only come from the SNP.

If Labour’s heading for the kind of defeat that some of the polls suggest, they’re going to descend into a period of civil war and bloodletting.

So, they’re not going to be capable of being an opposition to the Tories.

Real opposition, just as it has over the past two years, will only come from the SNP. Tory MPs will be a rubber-stamp for Theresa May, Labour’s not fit to be in opposition.
