Politics is the beating heart of Scottish life: dominating the news agenda, sparking lively debates, and influencing our daily lives for better or worse – now and in the future.
It is certainly never dull and, with the push for Indyref2, politics is sure to generate many headlines in the year ahead. The seismic disruption of the pandemic and the continuing impact of Brexit has meant Scotland’s politicians have never faced greater challenges.
As always, The Herald has held Holyrood and Westminster to account and led the debate with brilliant insight, analysis, and opinion. Our agenda-setting series Who Runs Scotland and the new 10-part Scotland’s Future series, which kicked off this month, have explored the key issues and asked the important questions.
Throughout 2022, we will continue our unparalleled coverage and comment, both in print and online, and we look forward once again to celebrating those politicians who have made a significant contribution when we hold The Herald Scottish Politician of the Year Awards.
