Welcoming the publication of another poll showing that a majority of definitive respondents, this time an astonishing 54%, support independence, Scottish Greens Co-Leader Patrick Harvie MSP said: 

“I’m delighted to see more and more people coming to the conclusion that Scotland must take its place as an independent country. 

“We know that many Labour members want to see a Scottish Green New Deal that can transform our economic fortunes, create thousands of quality jobs, and ensure Scotland plays our role in tackling the climate crisis.

“It’s clear that Richard Leonard can’t deliver this by seeking to bring back the Better Together cabal. By taking our future into our own hands, rather than hitching it to Boris Johnson’s bandwagon, Scotland can tackle all the challenges we face and build the better Scotland so many want and need.”
