Jeremy Corbyn rules out deal with SNP in hung parliament

"Labour firmly oppose a second independence referendum", a spokesman said.

However, what Sturgeon did say was that if her party won in Scotland it would strengthen the case for a second referendum for Scottish independence.

A "sweetheart deal" between Labour and the SNP after the June election could result in a "government in chaos", Theresa May warned, as Scotland's First Minister said she would use such an agreement to get as much of her nationalist manifesto implemented as possible.

Asked on Sky's Sophy Ridge on Sundayprogramme whether she would prefer to see Mr Corbyn in Number 10, she replied: "I don't want to see Tory governments and Tory Prime Ministers".

Earlier in the day, Ms Sturgeon hinted that she would rather see the Labour leader enter Downing Street after the election than for Mrs May to be returned as Prime Minister.

"I would ask them to think very carefully about it and suggest it would be much better to have this question dealt with at the conclusion of what are very serious and very important Brexit negotiations, where I am utterly determined to achieve tariff-free trade access to the European markets to protect manufacturing and service jobs all across the United Kingdom, all across Scotland, Wales and England as well of course".

The SNP will try to form a coalition government with Labour in the event of a hung parliament following next month's general election, Nicola Sturgeon has said.

But she also predicted that the Conservatives would win another majority - and said Mr Corbyn was not credible as a potential prime minister. "This might suit the two of them but it would be a disaster for Scotland - dragging us back to more division just at the moment when we need to move on, together", she said. There will be no alliance. We're fighting this election to win.

"Both the Conservatives and Labour's economic plans at this election have unravelled already under scrutiny from the IFS (Institute for Fiscal Studies), which has confirmed that a vote for the Tories is a vote for more cuts".

"Labour voters in Scotland now know that Jeremy Corbyn would sell them down the river".

But Ms Sturgeon needs the permission of the United Kingdom government for a legally-binding vote to be held. It's an absurd position.

The Liberal Democrats have also attacked the SNP over its record in government in Scotland, arguing that the party has "taken its eye off the ball" on health and education while it pursues an independence referendum.
