Commenting on the publication of a Panelbase poll for Business for Scotland which shows support for independence rising to 55%, Scottish Greens Co-Leader Patrick Harvie MSP said: 

“I’m delighted to see yet another poll show that ever more people in Scotland believe that it is time to choose independence. It’s no surprise that momentum towards independence continues to build in the face of utter contempt shown to Scotland by the Westminster Government. Boris Johnson’s disastrous handling of the pandemic and his sleekit attempts to undermine the democratic mandate of the Scottish Parliament have not gone unnoticed. The people of Scotland deserve so much better and by taking our future into our own hands we can build that better Scotland.”
