Scotland’s first daily newspaper to support independence from the United Kingdom will launch on Monday, reflecting surging nationalist support since Scots spurned independence two months ago. The Herald and Times group, part of the Newsquest publishing arm of U.S.-based firm Gannett, said it will produce a tabloid-style newspaper called The National in a week-long trial run. 

Since Scots voted by 55-45 percent to preserve the United Kingdom in a September 18th referendum, support has ballooned for the pro-independence Scottish National Party. Polls show the SNP could become Britain’s third largest party in terms of Westminster seats.
