Alison Johnstone MSP, the Scottish Greens' Health and Wellbeing spokesperson, has welcomed the findings of an Ipsos MORI poll showing that most Scots think that in ten years' time Scotland will be independent, a more equal society and mainly powered by renewables.aj at conf for web

Alison Johnstone, Scottish Green MSP for Lothian, said:

"It's fantastic to hear that most Scots reckon we're heading towards a greener, fairer society. More action is needed if we're to make these aspirations a reality though. Already we've seen Green pressure at Holyrood delivering progress on rent controls, warm homes, right-to-buy for football fans and unconventional gas extraction.

"A strong Green voice after May's elections will allow us to push that transformative agenda with even greater strength.

"The independence referendum really engaged people in politics and Scottish Greens are clear that the public should decide when the question of independence is put again. We are continuing work into areas such as currency to ensure an independent Scotland has maximum economic independence."
