By riding roughshod over that principle, the Supreme Court ruling today, ironically, shows more than ever why Scotland needs to be an independent country with a modern, properly democratic constitution if we are to claim the progressive future that people in Scotland want.

Stories about mould in Dundee's cold, leaking and poorly maintained housing stock are commonplace, and we have to pray that the awful tragic story of Awaab Ishak won't be repeated here. It doesn't have to be this way. Decent housing is a human right, and properly insulated homes that folk can afford to keep warm is crucial to beat the cost of living crisis and the climate crisis.

Calls have been...

While the Tories line up to announce a new wave of austerity in today’s budget, oil giant Shell paid £0 to the UK's windfall tax despite making over £9.5 billion profit in 3 months.
