Telegraph smears Nicola Sturgeon

According to the Daily Telegraph, SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon told French diplomats she wanted to see David Cameron remain as Prime Minister.

I’d like to address the matter of the leaked UK government memo about my meeting with the French ambassador. This story has already been shown to be 100% untrue – having been comprehensively rejected by both the French ambassador and consul general.

Nicola Sturgeon denies she said it, the French diplomats deny she said it.

What therefore do we make of it?

  • Daily Telegraph made it up
  • fake memo
  • person who wrote memo lied

It was highly unlikely Nicola Sturgeon made the comment, as she has worked ever since a teenager to see the Tories kicked out of Scotland.

If someone at the Scottish Office leaked the memo or fabricated the story, we have to ask why?

Always follow the money.

The Daily Telegraph is owned by the Barclay Brothers.

As exposed by Peter Oborne when he resigned, The Daily Telegraph has as much credibility as a newspaper as The Sun.

The Daily Telegraph published a letter  by 100 Fat Cats supporting the Tories. A spontaneous response we were told. So spontaneous, it was organised by George Osborne. Fat Cats who have done very nicely out of austerity, Fat Cats who have received honours from David Cameron.

Pathetic Ed Miliband leapt into the gutter and attacked Nicola Sturgeon. Was he there, was he party to the conversation? No, but that did not stop him joining in the smear, even though it was denied by all parties the conversation ever took place.

When Ed Miliband joined the No Campaign during the Scottish Referendum, he had to be escorted away by security for his own safety, such is his level of unpopularity in Scotland.

The smear campaign by pathetic Ed Miliband has spectacularly backfired.

Nicola Sturgeon:

There was a moment in last Wednesday’s televised leaders’ debate from Salford when I realised just how powerful a message the SNP’s anti-austerity alternative to the Westminster establishment is – not just to voters in Scotland, but to people from all across the UK.

It was at the half-time interval, when the other protagonists and I were given the chance to step away from our podiums and gather our thoughts during the three-minute advertisement slot.

It was at this point I took the opportunity to come forward and chat with some of the members of the public in the front rows of the studio audience.

And the conversations I had brought it home to me just how persuasive and compelling that anti-austerity message is, as some of the people I spoke to told me that they wished they had the opportunity to vote for SNP candidates in England. It was validation of the approach we have adopted to this election campaign, and personally it buoyed me hugely going into the second half of the debate.

ToryLite are facing meltdown in Scotland. During the seven way party debate, Nicola Sturgeon exposed how shallow Ed Miliband, that whatever he pretends, no can tell the difference to David Cameron, Tweedledee v Tweedledum, Tories v ToryLite.

Nicola Sturgeon and the other fringe parties showed there is an alternative to austerity.
