I’ve been very impressed by Lorna Slater. The combination of my confidence in the local constituency SNP candidate to take the seat (phew!), the transphobes joining Alba and Slater’s performances on TV, pushed me into voting for them on the regional vote.
I’ve done this before but some of their antics, especially running with the pack on the repeal of the Offensive Behaviour at Football Act (that’s worked out well?) have caused me to doubt them.
Now we have the co-leader writing:
Scottish Greens co-leader Lorna Slater has called for the re-elected First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to work across the diverse parliament to tackle the urgent crises of the pandemic recovery and the climate emergency. Responding to the election of the First Minister, Lorna Slater hailed “Scotland’s most diverse Parliament”, with more women, disabled and young people.
But she didn’t vote for her. She abstained. Was she unsure of how to choose between Douglas Ross, Willie Rennie and Nicola Sturgeon?
