The SNP has submitted an application to intervene in the Scottish Government’s Supreme Court case on an independence referendum. Read the full submission here.
Tory MPs are busy falling over themselves trying to prove themselves as the next Thatcher. Meanwhile, the Tory cost-of-living crisis worsens and families are unable to afford to put food on the table.
Just 0.2% of the UK will choose a new Tory Prime Minister, yet they think that they can deny the democratic will of the people of Scotland.

🔥 Nicola Sturgeon: "Anas Sarwar is perfectly entitled to team up with the Tories again to oppose independence. What he's not entitled to do is stand in the way of the Scottish people having the democratic right to choose."

📣 Angus Robertson: "Those on the opposition benches are there because they were rejected by the people of Scotland on their anti-independence ticket."
So far, we have seen the candidates for Prime Minister promise tax cuts for the rich, cuts to public spending and public services.

With our Land Reform Bill, we will introduce ambitious measures to reform Scotland's land in a fair, green and sustainable way.
Scotland has a strong record of progressive and innovative land reform - but this journey of reform is not complete. Our Land Reform Bill is a significant step forward in ensuring our land is owned and used in the public interest.
