Harvie raises Westminster power grab concerns at First Minister's Questions

30 March, 2017 - 13:12

Green co-convener Patrick Harvie today used First Minister’s Questions to raise concerns about the UK government’s failure to “entrench” the permanence of the Scottish Parliament and its intention to “hoard” powers repatriated from Brussels.

The Glasgow MSP reminded the chamber that the Scottish people voted in favour of a Scottish Parliament, by 74%, in 1997 and urged the First Minister to ensure that the Westminster government does not “bypass” Holyrood in relevant sections of the Repeal Bill.

Triggering of Article 50 "economic and social vandalism"

29 March, 2017 - 14:13

Ross Greer MSP, External Affairs spokesperson for the Scottish Greens, today (29 March) described the triggering of Article 50 by the Prime Minister as "economic and social vandalism" and “signalling the end of the UK”.

Yesterday, the Scottish Parliament agreed a Green amendment that a fresh referendum on independence is needed once the Brexit deal is known and before the UK has left the EU, and that the franchise should include sixteen and seventeen year olds and EU citizens living in Scotland.

Greens vote for Scotland’s right to decide on Brexit

28 March, 2017 - 17:05

The Green MSPs have voted for Scotland to have its say over Brexit, giving the Scottish Government a mandate to seek permission from the UK government to hold an independence referendum.

As well as voting for a “section 30” order, MSPs backed a Green amendment calling for European Union citizens and 16 and 17 year olds to have the ability to vote in the forthcoming independence referendum, a privilege denied to them in the 2016 EU referendum.

It is right that the people - and not a government they did not elect - choose where we go from here

Ross Greer MSP Tue 21 Mar

This week, the Scottish Parliament will be asked to approve the Scottish Government seeking what’s known as a Section 30 Order. This would give Holyrood the temporary power to hold a referendum. It’s a step that is clearly needed if we’re to give Scottish voters a choice about their own future.

Patrick's open reply to Tory MSP's anti-independence letter

Patrick Harvie MSP Tue 21 Mar

Dear Annie,

 

Thanks for your email about my party’s position on the call for a Section 30 order. I’m sure you wrote it in all seriousness, but I hope you’ll understand why it set me laughing grimly on the train home from Edinburgh when I read it.

The timing was odd, coming nearly five months after we debated the consequences of the EU Referendum result and issued our call for a Section 30 order. However, that point is rather minor compared with the rest of the email.
