INDYREF: GREENS SAY POSITIVE VISION ESSENTIAL
Responding to the latest Ipsos-Mori poll on independence, Scottish Greens are reaffirming their belief that a positive vision of a better society will help persuade undecided Scots to move towards a Yes vote.
The poll puts support for a Yes vote at 31 per cent with a No vote at 59 per cent.
It also shows Patrick Harvie MSP, Co-convener of the Scottish Greens, is the party leader with the highest net satisfaction rating.
Mr Harvie said:
"There are sixteen months of the campaign to go, and Scottish Greens look forward to engaging undecided voters. We believe by building a positive vision we can help persuade many Scots to move towards a Yes vote.
"You only have to look at yesterday's Queen's Speech to see that Scotland's aspirations are not reflected by Westminster. Next September we have a golden opportunity to improve our democracy and put the public good back into politics.
"Scottish Greens believe the fairness and progress our society wants can best be achieved by taking control of our economy and our resources. As long as Scotland remains an afterthought for politicians living in the Westminster bubble we will struggle to make progress on the issues that matter to us."
