SNP threaten to resign if Scottish budget plan isn't backed
The Scottish National Party, which controls the devolved parliament of Scotland, is threatening to resign if their Labour and Tory peers don't back the budget they've proposed.
THE SNP yesterday vowed to resign if their budget plans don't get backing. Finance secretary John Swinney made the pledge - just as he did last year.
Yesterday, his threat was dismissed as SNP play-acting.
Labour Leader Iain Gray said: "We heard this threat last year from Alex Salmond but we all knew they had the Tory vote in the bag.
"We are not in the slightest bit worried by these silly threats.
"The SNP love to grandstand but it is all rather childish.
"It'd be interesting to see if the SNP are bluffing or really mean it.
