Welcoming the publication of a new Savanta ComRes opinion poll published in the Scotsman this morning, which shows the Scottish Greens on course to elect a record number of MSPs in May, Scottish Greens co-leader Patrick Harvie MSP said:
“This welcome poll is just the latest in a long line which suggests that we can return a record number of Green MSPs in May. The public clearly appreciate the constructive approach to opposition adopted by our MSPs, which has seen us punch well above our weight and deliver bold and transformative policies like free bus travel for young people and a fairer tax system. We’ll continue to work constructively, pushing the government beyond its comfort zone, to build a fairer, greener Scotland."
This poll is also now the 17th in a row to demonstrate popular majority support for independence.
Mr Harvie added:
“Whether it’s the botched handling of the coronavirus crisis, the Brexit catastrophe or the just the general heartlessness of the Tories its clear that the UK simply isn’t working for Scotland. This is now the 17th consecutive poll demonstrating support for independence, and this time that support is at a record high. Scottish Greens will be key to delivering an independence majority and will go into the election with a clear commitment to put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands, by holding an independence referendum."
