Responding to news that a majority of Scots are now in favour of independence Scottish Greens Co-Leader Patrick Harvie MSP said:
“It’s time that the people of Scotland were given a choice over their future.
“We didn’t vote for Brexit, we didn’t vote for a Tory government and I’m certain that given the choice we wouldn’t have voted for Boris Johnson either, yet we are being dragged along with the ever increasing Brexit catastrophe, so its no wonder that a majority of Scots now recognise the need for us to make an exit from Boris Johnson’s Brexit Britain.
“We already have a mandate to hold an independence referendum, yet the Tory Government has threatened to block a request. This would be an affront to democracy, and is wholly untenable in the face of public support for a vote.
“It’s time for Scotland to retake our place as an independent European nation.”
