Would Labour bow to SNP pressure on Trident?

On Sunday 1 February Douglas Alexander appeared on the Andrew Marr show. He was asked about Trident. His response was interpreted in several papers as meaning that Labour would not bow to SNP pressure on Trident, in the event of a hung parliament. However this interpretation is suspect.

The headline in the Scotsman was "Douglas Alexander rules out SNP deal over Trident". The Herald said "Douglas Alexander warned his party would not negotiate over Britain's nuclear deterrent".
