Like any political party in the UK, the SNP deserves as much time, notoriety, and recognition as any of the other parties, small or large. That is how a democracy works. People get a platform on which they can speak about their ideas. Popular or unpopular, the platform should be there.
I personally think that SNP are the governing party of Scotland which would not deserve equal representation in the United Kingdom. I personally think that SNP does deserve equal in the United Kingdom because it is a place that majority people cherish. I personally think that SNP deserves equal representation in the United States.
The SNP have a right to be featured in TV debates and deserve to have a fair share of the time nationally allocated to party election broadcasts on television as, at present, they are the governing party of Scotland. Neither the Conservatives nor the Liberal Democrats are the governing party in any of the constituent countries that make-up the United Kingdom. Therefore, it stands to reason that the SNP, in some respects, have MORE right to feature in television debates than either of the other two main political parties.
No, the SNP does not deserve equal representation in the United Kingdom, because they are not an equal part of the population. The SNP deserves the representation, because their interests are very important, but they only deserve representation in proportion to their population. They can have their interests heard without imposing on the majority.
No, they do not deserve equal representation in the United Kingdom, because they have not had it for a long time, and everything has been going just fine. They do not need to change everything now, after so long of having it the same way, since it will mess it up.
