Scotland in Union needs your help

Welcome to Nat Fact Check, where Scotland in Union will be examining claims made by nationalist politicians to see how they weigh up.


We need your help.  You are our eyes and ears throughout Scotland, and we need you to get in touch whenever you see or hear a nationalist politician making a questionable claim. 


This could be in a leaflet, at a political meeting,

in a local newspaper, or broadcast on radio or television.

If you would like us to look into a claim, please contact Nat Fact Check at:,

including the following information in your email:

·      Your name and address

·      The politician making the claim

·      The quote from the politician making the claim

·      When and where this claim was made

·      Any related evidence (for example a
       photograph of the leaflet or article)

We may need to contact you for more information on your submission.  We will look into as many claims as possible, and you will find our responses here.  Check out our latest Nat Fact Check below!
