Sturgeon: SNP will keep the Tories out
Nicola Sturgeon has used her first speech as SNP leader to predict the party could hold the "balance of power" after the next general election
She told the SNP conference in Perth that the party would never do a deal which would put the Conservatives into power in the event of a hung parliament.
She said Scotland could gain much from a Labour government at Westminster that depended on SNP MPs for support.
But any deal would depend on commitments including scrapping Trident, she said.
