Long time opponent of Scottish independence, former MP George Galloway, has said he’s prepared to work with the Tories if it means ending the SNP’s grip on power at next year’s Holyrood election.
The left-winger believes his new Alliance for Unity party can return several MSPs in 2021 because they are disillusioned with the big pro-Union parties.
Galloway, who has a home in the Borders, intends to stand as a list candidate in the South of Scotland region.
He was quoted as saying: “We’ve got only one goal – to get the SNP out. If we don’t get off this hamster wheel, this neverendum, we’ll never have normal politics in Scotland. Everything will be down to grudge and division.”
He continued: “We don’t want a Tory or a Labour government. We want a national unity government that will begin this task of returning normality to Scottish politics.
“I’m against the SNP more than I’m against anyone else. That doesn’t mean I’m for anyone else.”
