Leaders debate: Slater brings fresh energy to TV debate

Scottish Green co-leader brought fresh energy to the first TV leaders debate of the 2021 election campaign.

Despite attempts by other leaders to stick to arguments around the timing of a referendum, Lorna Slater clearly laid out the impact Scottish Greens have had in the Scottish Parliament and our vision for Scotland's future as a fairer, greener, independent nation

Commenting on his fellow co-leader's performance on this evening’s leaders’ debate, Scottish Greens co-leader Patrick Harvie said:

“This was Lorna's first TV debate, but she has shown that she is a terrific new voice in Scottish politics. She set out the stakes at this election and called out those who have nothing to offer but stopping Scotland having a say over our future. Lorna’s fresh energy stood out against experienced politicians to highlight our positive vision for Scotland’s future by investing in a green recovery and addressing the climate emergency.”
