Responding to the Prime Minister’s remarks on The Andrew Marr Show this morning regarding Scotland’s future, Scottish Greens co-leader Lorna Slater said:

“Only the people of Scotland have the right to determine Scotland’s future.

“17 consecutive opinion polls have demonstrated majorities in favour of independence, with the most recent indicating a record 58% support.

“Whether it’s the botched handling of the coronavirus crisis, the Brexit catastrophe or just the heartlessness of Tory governments we haven’t voted for, it’s clear that the UK isn’t working for Scotland.

“Scottish Greens will go into May’s election with a clear commitment to put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands, and the people of Scotland will have their say.”
