An editor landed an early election exclusive by having the Prime Minister write for his newspaper on his first day in the job.
Mrs May told the paper’s readers a vote for the Scottish Conservatives would send a “clear message” of opposition to the SNP’s “divisive” plans for a second independence vote.
However, The Scotsman itself has pledged not to back any party through the forthcoming campaign.
Said Frank: “The Scotsman will play a key role in the forthcoming general election by bringing readers a Scottish perspective on all the important issues, incisive analysis, explainers and graphics.”
Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron’s message to Yorkshire also features along with a full-drop leader promising not tell readers what to think, but to “make them think”.
Elsewhere, the Hartlepool Mail splashed on a special election poll of readers which showed Labour slightly ahead of the Tories on its patch.
Hartlepool’s Labour MP Iain Wright has since announced this morning that he will not be standing as a candidate.
A poll run by the News online yesterday revealed 33pc were ‘fed up’ at the prospect of another General Election, with 22pc stating they had no strong feelings either way and 45pc welcoming it.
