Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale has given "a big, fat, huge, categoric NO" to the possibility of a coalition with the Scottish National Party.

Parliament is soon to be dissolved at the country goes to the ballot box once again in June. Jeremy Corbyn has already stepped out onto the campaign trail, suggesting he offers an alternative to the establishment and that Labour have a genuine chance of victory.

SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon has floated the idea of a Labour-SNP alliance, which Theresa May blasted as a "coalition of chaos."

She also said a Labour victory was "possible", suggesting Mr Corbyn is the best option for the UK.
