SCOTLAND in Union has been accused of attempting to "bully" the Electoral Commission, after a Freedom of Information (FOI) request revealed an organisation in chaos over spending rules.

Correspondence between the Unionist group and the Electoral Commission was revealed under an FOI by The Herald.

According to the documents, the group spent £73,000 on last year’s snap election – despite a spending limit of £55,000. 

In another embarrassing revelation, Scotland in Union boss Pamela Nash appeared unaware that, despite it being a snap election, donations should have been declared for a period of one year before the polling date.
