THERESA May has been accused of “running feart” after banning The National from her Glasgow press conference.

The Prime Minister is north of the border today as part of her campaign to get the public behind her Brexit deal.

But the Tory leader isn’t going to bother trying to win over the hearts and minds of readers of the only newspaper to support an independent Scotland.

No 10’s press office said “limited capacity” meant they wouldn’t be able to extend an invite to The National.

It’s the second time in as many weeks that our reporters have been denied a chance to hold top Tory government officials to account.

Two weeks ago we were the only national Scottish newspaper denied a chance to question May’s de-facto deputy David Lidington.

The SNP MSP George Adam said: “Theresa May is running feart.

“As is par-for-the-course on her day trips to Scotland, she’s hiding from the public and dodging questions from the press – only speaking to a hand-picked audience.

“She’s in town just a day after analysis revealed her damaging Brexit plan will cost Scotland

£9 billion in GDP. That’s £1600 per person. Little wonder she’s trying to hide from scrutiny.”
