      SSP ban will cost party thousands
      A demonstration by the Scottish Socialist Party could cost it £25,000,
      according to its national treasurer.

      The Scottish Parliament banned four of its MSPs from the building for a
      month after they staged an in-house protest.

      The politicians will also lose their salaries and allowances during
      their suspensions - a total of £51,708.

      As the SSP MSPs donate half of their salaries to party coffers each
      month this means its overall finances will also be hit by the exclusion.
