What has The National been up to?

Recently, our political reporter Xander Elliards wrote a special report telling readers how Scottish renewable power was being “utterly wasted” as wind farms were paid £570 million to shut down in 2021 alone. He is also keeping an on plans to convert the UK’s largest conventional hydro power plant – on the banks of Loch Lomond – into a renewables project.

Grassroots reporter Laura Pollock is heading out to visit Yes groups this month, including Yes Largs, and Yes Tweeddale, alongside SNP events in Midlothian and Livingstone, as well as keeping the finger on the pulse with grassroots leaders as the SNP convention plays out.

James Walker has been leading our Sudan coverage with exclusives from speaking to humanitarian organisations on the ground. He reported as charities called for more eyes on the plight of Sudanese people still struggling in war-torn Sudan.

As always, we strive for up-to-date, exclusive political stories – including from Westminster where our political reporter Hamish Morrison is now based. He has been catching up with SNP MPs today on how they are feeling concerning the recent poll forecasting a loss of 23 seats, as well as what they are thinking of the independence convention.

Steph Brawn and Judith Duffy are also working on some great exclusives for the Sunday National which are also all included in your subscription.


We couldn’t ensure in-depth coverage like this to assist in convincing no or undecided voters to the merits of independence without you, our subscribers.

We hope you'll join us for the next year.
