HARVIE ON MILIBAND: GREENS HAVE THE BOLD POLICIES
Responding to comments by Labour leader Ed Miliband, Scottish Greens co-convener Patrick Harvie MSP said:
"It's a bit rich for Ed Miliband to talk about a society where we look after each other, given his shadow chancellor won't reverse the Coalition's austerity budget and his shadow work and pensions minister doesn’t want to represent people who’re out of a job. The first-past-the-post voting system is broken and at this election people are keener than ever to vote for what they believe in.
"With bold policies such as a £10 minimum wage by 2020, publicly-owned railways, and opposition to the TTIP trade deal which threatens public services, it's no wonder so many members of the Green Surge are former Labour supporters."
