Episode 234 of 1270 episodes

First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon told the Today programme the SNP could "choose to lock the Tories out of government" should "anti-Tory MP's" outnumber Conservative MP's in the House of Commons following the election in May. Speaking to John Humphrys, she claimed the SNP would be "open to an arrangement" with Labour, but stressed the two parties would be unlikely to form a coalition together.
