The Scottish National Party has announced that, following the shameful action by LibDem and Tory MPs’ to increase tuition fees to £9000 for students studying at English universities, it is now free for all students to join the SNP, Scotland’s biggest political party.
Students who wish to join the Scottish National Party can do so by going to: www.voteSNP.com/JoinFree
Commenting, SNP Westminster Leader Angus Robertson MP said:
“From the 10th of December through to Christmas Day, all students wishing to join the SNP can do so for free. The shameful action by LibDem and Tory MPs at Westminster yesterday evening will hit students not just in England but will also have a detrimental effect to universities and students here in Scotland.
“This invitation is to allow every student who feels betrayed, lied to and fed up of the London parties saying one thing and doing the opposite. Students deserve better than that.
“In 2007 the SNP abolished the graduate endowment, a back-door tax on students put in place by Labour and LibDem MSPs at Holyrood. We believe that going to university is about the ability to learn and not the ability to pay.
“I urge as many students as possible to join the SNP because together we can, and will make Scotland better.”
