UK's Cameron Says Labour-SNP Power Deal would Be Frightening

The prospect of Scottish Nationalists holding sway over a minority Labour government is "frightening", British Prime Minister David Cameron said on Sunday, as polls suggested deadlock 18 days before an election. The Scottish National Party could win 53 out of 59 seats north of the border, according to recent forecasts, giving a party whose aim is an independent Scotland huge influence over a British parliament where no single party commands a majority. SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon said the SNP and Labour, which are both left of center, could "work together" to prevent Cameron from regaining power.
