VOTE: Was Ed Miliband right to rule out any formal deal with the SNP?

Miliband told the audience he 'couldn't be clearer' that there would be no deal between the two parties

 

There will be no Labour government if it involves a coalition or a deal with SNP, Ed Miliband said during last night’s special edition of leaders’ Question Time.

Miliband told the audience he “couldn’t be clearer” there would be no deal between the two parties.

But was he right to do so? Does this see off Tory attacks about the SNP ‘holding the country to ransom’? Or will it just make governing in the likely event of a hung parliament even harder?
