THE cost-of-living crisis is hitting everyone and at The National, we feel it should not create a barrier for anyone to be able to access to credible, up-to-date, and in-depth coverage from Scotland’s only pro-independence newspaper.

We are now offering readers the chance to subscribe and pay-what-you-can-afford.

The National wants to ensure Scots have access to the news that matters during the UK’s cost of living crisis. You’ll also have access to subscriber-only analysis from the likes of Lesley Riddoch, Ruth Wishart, the Wee Ginger Dug and many more top voices.

Our columnists across Scotland have been reacting to the recently announced pay-what-you-can-afford subscription offer.

Ruth Wishart pointed at how necessary this is now. She said: "Given how cash strapped many folk are just now, this is a really great initiative, and The National is a bargain at any price!"

Lesley Riddoch urged readers to support the paper but also to take advantage of the offer. She said:

“It's great to see the National bend over backwards to help readers with this epic, flexible readership deal. The paper still has to stay on the road - now of all years - so do sign up to pay what you can.”

Professor Richard Murphy said for anyone who wants an independent Scotland, its time to take part in the movement. The National can provide you with everything you need to know and this he says, is a bargain. He added:

"Good news reporting and opinion does not come cheap, but The National is giving the chance to get it for whatever you can afford. With an annual sub for whatever you think it's worth, you set the price and then play your part in spreading the news about Scotland's future. If you want an independent Scotland, there is no bargain bigger than that right now.

"Getting The National for whatever you can afford to pay? That's what I call economic justice.”

Stuart Cosgrove sent a message to readers to “keep reading, keep thinking and try out new ideas” at this time of constitutional debate.

Our reporters have been live in Aberdeen and London this week to provide you with the most up-to-date coverage around.
