Ahead of next month’s general election, SNP leader and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has agreed to answer PinkNews readers’ questions in a Q&A.

The SNP launched its manifesto yesterday – the last day on which voters can register to vote ahead of the election on May 7.

Party leader Nicola Sturgeon – who recently called on Labour’s Ed Miliband to work with the party to deny another Conservative-led coalition government – unveiled the document.

In its manifesto, the SNP pledged: “SNP MPs will also make the case for the establishment of a special envoy – a diplomatic post within the Foreign Office – to promote the rights of LGBTI people throughout the word [sic], as an integral part of UK foreign policy.”

Ms Sturgeon last month condemned abuse sent to Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson on twitter, saying it was “unacceptable” and suspending the member responsible.

After Mr Coburn gave several answers warning about immigrants, Ms Sturgeon said: “I think the only depressing thing tonight is the narrow-minded xenophobic attitude of David Coburn.

“It’s absolutely utterly disgusting. This is the guy who compared one of my colleagues to a convicted terrorist simply because he’s a Muslim.

“You are a disgrace.”

She also rebuked UKIP’s Scottish leader David Coburn during a TV debate last week, after he compared a Muslim politician to a terrorist.

Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg’s Q&A was released earlier this month.
