Responding to the publication of UK Government documents by the Court of Session, Scottish Greens Co-Leader Patrick Harvie MSP said: 

“The documents which the court has released reinforce what most of us already know – Boris Johnson cannot be trusted. His hand written notes reveal his contempt for parliamentary democracy. He crafted his plan to subvert parliament by shutting it down weeks ago. Last night parliament showed the Prime Minister that it would not take him at his word, by refusing to sanction a General Election until the threat of a No-Deal Brexit is removed. UK politics is currently in crisis and it is vital that parliament continues to do all it can to keep Johnson’s menacing regime in check.”
