At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

The SNP’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford has urged the Prime Minister to resign or face a vote of no confidence in Parliament.

The Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend Parliament was unlawful.

MP for Ross, Skye and Lochaber, Mr Blackford said this ‘marks the end of the short road’ for the Prime Minister, adding: ‘Boris Johnson must recognise the reality of this damning ruling and he must resign. We will continue to work with other opposition leaders and MPs in holding the Tory government to account.’

The SNP will be working to prevent a No Deal Brexit as Parliament resumes.
