Boris Johnson has called Scotland’s public health achievements, free prescriptions and university tuition and Scottish Green achievements like free bus travel for young people, fairer taxes and equal protection for children a ‘disaster’ Patrick Harvie

Responding to the ongoing Tory disarray following reports that the Prime Minister has called devolution in Scotland “a disaster”, Scottish Greens co-leader Patrick Harvie said:

“The Conservative Party have never liked decisions made in Scotland, but they’re now utterly confused about whether to oppose the Prime Minister, double down on his views, or deny that he even meant what he so clearly said.

“Boris Johnson has called Scotland’s public health achievements, free prescriptions and university tuition and Scottish Green achievements like free bus travel for young people, fairer taxes and equal protection for children a ‘disaster’.

“We shouldn’t be surprised. The Tories campaigned against the creation of the Scottish Parliament in the first place and are now seeking to overrule it with their illegal internal market bill. This attack on our democracy cannot win, and will only wake more people up to the fact that Scotland can play a leading role in Europe without Westminster holding us back.”
