Responding to reports that the Scottish Greens would fight an election on a single issue, but that it is breaking up the UK rather than the climate emergency, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP commented:
“The Greens sound more like the SNP every day. They promised to cut rail fares but forced them up. They promised more public transport but it has been chaos. Now they wouldn’t even put the climate first during an election campaign.
“This Green Party must be the only one anywhere in the world to abandon its traditions and swap environmentalism for nationalism.
“If you want a party that will tackle the climate emergency without the baggage of nationalism then back the Scottish Liberal Democrats.”
