Alex Salmond of the Scottish National Party:
unveiled an election manifesto calling for the immediate scrapping of the Trident nuclear weapons system and its replacement, abolishing the House of Lords, better state pensions, abandoning ID cards and increased state spending on big projects to boost the economy.
Plaid Cymru agree, of course.
So do the Greens.
But why can't we have a mainstream party saying this in England when it makes so much sense?
