Once again, voters in Scotland will be asking why Gordon Brown didn’t put forward creative suggestions for enhancing devolution when he had the ability to implement them. Patrick Harvie MSP

Patrick Harvie MSP, the Scottish Greens’ co-convener, said:

“Once again, voters in Scotland will be asking why Gordon Brown didn’t put forward creative suggestions for enhancing devolution when he had the ability to implement them. For these proposals to become a reality, it would require the improbable prospect of Scottish Labour getting in to power at Holyrood in tandem with Corbyn’s Labour winning a general election and a sudden, unexpected thirst for federalism in the rest of the UK. Importantly though, and compared with independence, this plan would do nothing to maintain Scotland’s ties with Europe, or protect us from the isolated Britain planned by the Tories, which will cost Scotland 80,000 jobs and a £2,000 drop in average wages.”
