Scotland needs the freedom to take a different direction, leave behind this Brexit chaos and find our own way out of the crisisPatrick Harvie MSP
Scottish Greens Parliamentary Co Leader Patrick Harvie has today (21 March) called on the First Minister to reveal her preferred timing for an independence referendum, in light of the impending Brexit disaster.
In January, the First Minister advised that she would update the people of Scotland in a matter of weeks. Two months later, no announcement has yet been made. In light of the crisis brought about by the Prime Minister, Scotland needs the opportunity to take a different decision.
Patrick Harvie MSP said:
“Scotland needs the freedom to take a different direction, leave behind this Brexit chaos and find our own way out of the crisis. This is why we need independence. The First Minister said she would tell the people of Scotland her preferred timing for an independence referendum within weeks, but that was months ago.
“The people of Scotland need clarity about when they will have the choice to decide their own future, when they can make the decision to remain in the EU as an independent member state.”
