Scottish Green Party members stand ready to campaign with our Green colleagues in the other nations of the UK, and with people across party lines for a People’s Vote. Patrick Harvie MSP

Scottish Greens co-convener Patrick Harvie tonight (7 Nov) welcomed the vote at Holyrood to endorse a People's Vote, so people throughout the UK can have a final chance to cancel Brexit.

Last month, Scottish Green party members voted at their Autumn conference to back the policy of a People’s Vote, a campaign already being led by Caroline Lucas MP and the Green Party of England & Wales.

Patrick Harvie MSP said:

"Tonight's vote was very clear, with an outright majority of MSPs voting in favour of a People's Vote, and renewing the strong message that Scotland should not be dragged out of Europe against the clear public will. This adds to the many local authorities which have backed the campaign, including Glasgow City Council last week. The case is becoming irresistible for this final chance to stop the mess and cancel Brexit.

"Scottish Green Party members stand ready to campaign with our Green colleagues in the other nations of the UK, and with people across party lines for a People’s Vote.”

Let’s not go down with Brexit. It’s time we charted our own course

Patrick Harvie MSP Fri 16 Nov, 2018

After months of build-up, we finally have a deal. And what a thing of beauty it is. This monumental act of self-harm is making almost everyone unhappy. From the Brextremists of the Rees-Mogg tendency, and the arch-unionists of the DUP, right through to ardent Remain supporters and the independence movement in Scotland.

The reaction to the deal is telling. Labour’s priority is to agitate for an election, yet we know from opinion polls they have failed to land a blow on this hapless Tory government, so the great Corbyn victory they are hoping for looks as distant as ever.
