THE National is launching a pay-what-you-can annual subscription deal to ensure Scots have access to the news that matters during the UK’s cost of living crisis.

From today for a limited period, readers will be able to subscribe to a year’s worth of content from Scotland’s only pro-independence daily newspaper and pay only what they are able to.


It’s right in time for both the SNP conference and the Supreme Court’s indyref2 hearing – so independence supporters can keep up with every major development regardless of their financial means.

Our top team of political journalists will be reporting live from Aberdeen and London in the coming days, bringing you everything you need to know about these huge developments in Scotland’s story.

We’ll have exclusive interviews with the key players, expert analysis summing up all the complicated legal jargon, videos from the scene, fact checks of Unionist claims and all the breaking news you need.

With a subscription, supporters are able to enjoy unlimited access to all our articles – including premium stories.

We have Readers Rewards offering discounts on top brands and shops helping you to save cash, and you’ll be able to keep your brain in gear with more than 50+ puzzles every week.

But what’s most important is that regardless of financial means during this difficult time, people across Scotland can read the truth about how our membership of the Union led us to the current sorry state – and how we can provide a real alternative with independence.

We cover stories on the energy inequality facing Scotland – despite its energy-rich status – and how we could do things differently as an independent country.

We provide explainers on how the UK Government’s shambolic economic policies affect you right now, plus expert analysis and commentary on how Scotland’s own finances would look following a Yes vote.

Readers love our speedy breaking news, our willingness to speak out against the UK’s crumbling institutions when others won’t, our agenda-leading exclusive news stories and top-level opinion from Scotland’s best columnists.

We hope you’ll join The National's family of subscribers.
