With the General Election campaign well underway it’s been yet another busy week for the SNP. In case you missed it, here’s a quick round up of all the latest news.

📍 On Saturday, a YouGov poll found that support for the SNP in Scotland had risen to 42%, whilst Labour support had collapsed. But we’re taking nothing for granted and are fighting for every vote.

📍 On Sunday, the Guardian’s own analysis found that the SNP are the strongest main party for tackling climate change.

📍 By Monday we heard that Nigel Farage wouldn’t stand his Brexit Party candidates in any Conservative seats. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “I suspect there are many traditional Tory voters that are appalled to find that their party has effectively become the Brexit Party.”

📍 Tuesday saw the release of the SNP’s new campaign advert, highlingting the need for Scotland to take a different path to the one laid out by the Tories.

📍 And that night Nicola Sturgeon joined Mhairi Black for a packed-out town tall meeting in Johnstone. The First Minister said Scottish voters had the opportunity to reject Boris Johnson and choose a more optimistic future for Scotland.

📍 On Wednesday Nicola Sturgeon accepted the challenge to list 50 Scottish Government headline achievements in just a few minutes.

📍 On Thursday the SNP launched a legal action fund to fight for our place on televised election debates. The SNP is the UK’s third party and Scotland’s party of government – our voices must be heard.

📍 On Thursday night Jeremy Corbyn came on a flying visit to Scotland – but there was a message waiting for him outside the venue.

📍 On Friday we learned the results of 3 council by-elections – a hat-trick of victories for the SNP.
