Let's examine some SNP/One Wales accord policies compared to Dave's list:

It is time for cutting inefficiencies not services.

The NHS agenda for change and other modernisation policies are active in Wales/Scot but won't be extending to NHS liberalization reforms as seen in England. Welsh and Scots schools remain curriculum driven and free of most academy/ vocationalisation/ for-profit policies.

Vital front line services are at risk. They must be protected.

Salmond has an alternative approach to managing the deficit which includes less cuts but higher taxes for well off folks, sounds fair to me.

We must support local businesses and protect jobs.

Enterprise, transport, trams, subsidised travel for old/young, business starts, enterprise parks, new business loans, these are some of the policies you'll see listed on the Wales/ Scots Gov Web sites, what few schemes England had are being scrapped under this coalition, badly damaging enterprise and growth. Many, many schemes and careers services, EMA, etc for young people are being axed.

Resist further increases in car parking charges.

Welsh and Scots hospitals have scrapped fees to park. England continues this practice, including charges for NHS staff parking at work.

We must protect the unique character of our towns and cities.

I think this argument was lost long ago but also has to be balanced with job creation, but we need to avoid the unplanned urban decay of the past and plan towns instead of allowing unplanned sprawl. Green schemes to create urban green areas in urban locations are happening in Wales/Scot.

Encourage the building of more affordable housing for homeless and our young people.

Yes it's terrible, Wales has some good housing schemes, Cymuned was organising some good schemes a few years back. This areas is sorely lacking across the UK.

Social housing, jobs, young people, careers, start-ups, enterprise these are progressive centrist ideals, not something we will ever see under the neoliberal laissez faire world of ConDem. The best Cameron can do is go begging to the CBI conference or ask the Chinese to build factories over here.  Now our friend Alex Salmond seems to have a good handle on these matters...

 

"SNP/Progressive Democratic" alliance

Time for LibDem politicians to create a new UK-wide political alliance with the SNP.
